Dear A.S.S. Editor
So apparently the fire that razed the waste management plant in Tuas was not the first one. Reports stated that a smaller fire had occurred 5 years ago at Eco Special Waste Management, and required about 25 of its staff to be evacuated safely.
The company had released a statement that since that incident, they had spent $70 million to upgrade its facilities with new machinery. Unfortunately, even with this new machinery, it could not prevent yesterday’s fire. The company should be applauded for making efforts to improve its fire safety, but at the same time, investigations must be carried out thoroughly to find out why all this still failed to prevent the massive fire.
Thankfully, out of the two fires, nobody got hurt. At the end of the day, that is the most important thing.
