This project, which costs VND 502 billion, has been funded by the Korean Economic Development Cooperation Fund in the form of preferential loans. Of the 81 fire and rescue vehicles handed over this time, 18 are large-sized fire engines, 48 are medium-sized fire engines, and the remainders are rescue vehicles.

All vehicles, which were manufactured by Everdigm Group, were strictly supervised and verified by the Korea Fire Safety Institute from design to production, meeting the fire protection standards of Europe, Korea and Vietnam as well as Vietnam's environmental and standards and infrastructural features.

Speaking at the event, Deputy Minister Nguyen Van Son spoke highly of the Korean Government’s financial support for the Vietnamese fighting and rescue force, contributing to deepening the relationship and cooperation on the basis of mutual trust and support. He believed that these vehicles would be used effectively and become the main fighting assets of the fire protection and fighting police units in the localities.
