    We are still fighting fire like medieval period.Can’t the MoAF invest in some decent gears and equipment?

    Why should I volunteer when the ministry itself is not so serious about it and risk my life?

  2. Pema Thinley

    its all due to human carelessness…..there is nobody to blame

  3. langchu

    the department of forest and ministry of finance should really look into the matter of budgeting and supplying basic fire fighting equipment before we all start blaming each others.

  4. namgay wangchuk

    at this time it would be useless to blame one another. best way to prevent would be to educate the people on it and make the people realize
