The presence of a Fire Fighters unit in this locality is aimed at responding to security threats, fire outbreaks and other consequences of the increasing industrializing area.

The Minister Delegate in his inaugural speech thanked the Director General of PROMETAL for the support his institution is giving the Cameroon government, a gesture which goes in line with the call of the Army and Nation logic by the President of the Republic and Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces, Paul Biya.
