Yesterday (October 18th 2013 ) I witness the fire broke-out at Pasodan street.I saw fire fighters battling with the smoke that came from the electronic shop Where fire start.The firefighters are trying to stop the fire with equipment that are century old.The government give a little budget to department of fire fighter.They wait till some business man come and donate them.It is not a modern equipment but the fire fighters are well trained with this kind of situation.Some of the the fire trucks are century old but there is no replacement.Water is dripping in some trucks that is nearly 20% waste.The government need to increase the budget to modernize the machinery.If major disasters like earthquake or storm is arrive we are not prepare yet.We had witness the major storm that took away a lot of lives in that time we saw that we cannot handle the major disasters.In Myanmar people used a lot of voltage regulators and stabilizers because the government distribution voltage is not stable .That is main reason for the fire break out during the dry season by electric shock.Some electric cable wire are not international standard gate.And some rural area are still using candles and patrol lanterns for alternative for electricity.That is also another reason for fire break out..But we have to appreciate the firefighters for their job which they done.
