Thirteen more fire stations need to be built in Almaty, KazTAG reports citing Deputy Head of Almaty Emergency Situations Department Nurlan Madyarov as saying.
"Thirteen additional fire stations should be built for Almaty city. The city has been expending and nearly 400 hectares have been added. That is why the government made a decision to allocate funds for additional fire stations," Madyarov said at a press conference on August 22.
He specified that construction of one fire station was already underway in Karasu region. "One fire station is being constructed in Karasu region, design and estimate documents for the second one have already been finalized. About 900 million tenge ($6 million) have been allocated for the construction so far, so it will be a standard six-gate fire station," Nurlan Madyarov said. "These funds (900 million tenge ($6 million) are all for the first station," he specified.
