First Tianjin Firefighters Were Mainly Contract Workers

It’s been revealed that the first firefighters to arrive at the scene of the Tianjin explosions were mainly contract workers. Tianjin Port Public Security and Fire Control Brigade chief Zhou Tian said that his department were first to respond to the emergency, while a www.caijing.com.cn report said that they were not part of the national firefighting network, and were payed by state enterprise Tianjin Port. The report also said that the brigade’s professional competence was lacking in comparison to regular fire services. One netizen mockingly asked, “So does that mean they’re not firefighters?”
