After becoming a special municipality, Taoyuan’s fire manpower, equipment and hall environment have been greatly improved, and the number of fires and death toll was the lowest among the special municipalities in the recent 3 years.

 

In the morning of Dec 30, Taoyuan City Mayor Cheng Wen-Tsan was hosting the municipal council and listening to the 2015-2022 work report of Fire Department. He said that Taoyuan’s population has been increasing year by year since the city became a special municipality, and the construction of more and higher buildings has greatly increased the complexity and risk of disaster. In order to endure the safety of citizens’ lives and property, the city government has been improving the fire manpower, disaster relief equipment and hall environment. In the recent 3 years, the government has indeed decreased the occurrence of disasters and ensured the citizens’ safety, in which the number of “fire incidents” and “death toll of fires” in Taoyuan has been decreasing year by year, and is the lowest among the special municipalities.

 

The commissioner of Fire Department, Hsieh Lu-Chuan, said that the number of fire manpower in the city has increased from 1,155 to 1,790 since 2014, and the current firefighter-civilian ratio is 1:1,372, which will continue to increase by 3% year by year. To reduce the heavy workload of firefighters and improve the quality of fire service, the goal is to reach 2,377 of manpower in 2032.

 

Commissioner Hsieh pointed out that Taoyuan has spent nearly TWD 700 million on replenishing, replacing and upgrading the disaster relief equipment since Taoyuan became a special municipality. From 2015 to 2022, they have replaced 144 fire engines and purchased the only “Jaguar” in the country—the high efficiency chemical fire engine. Each brigade also has purchased a variety of group equipment, such as lighting guide lines, thermal imagers, rescue ladders and fire rescue robots, which are all high-quality and the best of the country. In addition, Taoyuan City pioneered a mechanism for the complete overhaul and replacement of personal equipment, and maintains the equipment regularly, which is also the best.

 

Commissioner Hsieh said that the city government has invested TWD 1.4523 billion and 135.02 million respectively to build 11 new fire hall buildings and renovate 19 original ones, in order to provide a better working and training environment for firefighters. Since 2016, they have completed the new buildings for Brigades of Yongan, Puxin, Pingding, Baling and Xinwu. In addition, Puzi/1st squadron and Pingzhen/4th squadron will be completed and put into operation in 2023.

 

Commissioner Hsieh mentioned that Taoyuan City has excellent medical rescue quality. In 2021, the success rate of OCHA was 30.01%, and the number of discharged people recovering from first aid was 110, which are both the highest among the special municipalities. Further, the response time was 5.2 minutes, better than the national average 6.81 minutes, which was also the only one showing a decrease in response time among the special municipalities.
