According to Minister McGill, for so long the country continues to suffer from series of serious fire disasters due to the limited fire trucks as well as the movement of citizens from one place to another, emphasizing that both the five fire trucks and 45 buses donated by the Indian government to the country will help to reduce the number of fire outbreaks the country is experiencing and will also help ease the burden citizens go through in getting to their various destinations.
He added that the country, under the leadership of President Weah, has received five new fire trucks in just two years which demonstrates his willingness to transform the country within his six years presidency, indicating “When I informed the Liberia National Fire Service (LNFS) about the trucks, many doubted it; but I do not speak because I want to but it is by direct instructions from the President.”
Meanwhile, Minister McGill used the occasion to remind the Indian government about the conference hall to be constructed on the Bali Island and the Bali Island bridge that will connect the country’s capital, stressing “We are still looking up to India for this project and hope that it will start this year; as this project is the heartbeat of the President.”

“As the bilateral relations between both countries continue to grow stronger, we foresee more fruits coming into Liberia,” he stated.
The Liberia National Fire Service (LNFS) Director, Alex K. Dickson, said since the independence of the country till present, the country has never received two fire trucks together and that the five fire trucks received in two years of President Weah’s tenure demonstrates his willingness to prioritize the LNFS.
