Namport Gets Fire Engine and Clinic

NAMPORT inaugurated a N$5,3 million fire engine and N$1 million clinic recently.

Since Walvis Bay’s integration into Namibia in 1994, Namport and the Walvis Bay municipality agreed through a memorandum of understanding that the town would provide firefighting assistance to Namport during emergencies.

That was until now.

Through a public tender, MampZ Motors supplied the truck which underwent a series of adaptions to become the second largest fire engine in Namibia.

“The price is justified by the work this vehicle will do to save lives and assets,” said Namport CEO Bisey Uirab.

The ports authority also added a larger and more modern clinic to its infrastructure portfolio. The clinic is situated next to the Namport police station.

It is expected to reduce the time workers spend waiting for medical attention at public health facilities.

Two nurses will run the clinic with the supervision of a doctor.

The trio will do counselling and consultations.
