Johannesburg Mayor Herman Mashaba has unveiled 10 new firefighting vehicles to be added to the City's Emergency Management Services' fleet.
The vehicles are the first batch to be part of the City's fire and rescue fleet renewal programme.
The strain on the City's firefighting capacity was widely reported in July, with it only having six working vehicles at the time, News24 reported.
The renewal programme was set to add to and substitute the ageing and damaged fleet.
Mashaba was joined by Public Safety MMC Michael Sun and acting Group Corporate and Shared Services MMC Leah Knott in unveiling the new "skid vehicles".
He said the City would be receiving a total of 92 fire engines in the near future.
