Firefighting vehicle – OKTA’s donation for the Firefighting Unit of Kumanovo

(Skopje, 22.12.2015)Kumanovo’s Firefighting Unit received a donation – firefighting vehicle from the company OKTA. This donation will increase the efficiency and the capacities of the territorial unit for firefighting interventions.

“This is a second donation from OKTA in the area of firefighting protection this year. This time we have decided to donate a FF vehicle to the territorial firefighting unit of Kumanovo, as our long-term collaborators. Recently our successful cooperation was also confirmed through their participation of in the interactive operational drill for managing incidents, which was organized in OKTA. Together, we have shown high level of professionalism and coordination in our efforts to prevent crises caused by unpredicted situations. We hope that this donation will contribute for more efficient operation of Kumanovo’s Firefighting Unit”, stated Suzana Crvenkova, Manager for Health, Safety and Environment in OKTA.

However for more effective reaction in given situations, there is a need of greater capacity, i.e. more vehicles. This donation has great importance for us and will enable us better control and mobility in cases of natural disasters and other accidents. Based on the positive experience and corporate culture of OKTA, we believe that the collaboration will continue and we will strengthen our partnership and friendship relations”, stated Valentina Aleksovska, Secretary of the Municipality of Kumanovo.
