Mogadishu’s fire department is resuming operations for the first time since 1991 when civil war broke out in Somalia.

Firefighters in the capital have recently completed an intensive training course organised by the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM).

Many basic public services like firefighting, healthcare and sanitation were neglected by extremist group al-Shabaab who controlled parts of the capital and country until the Somali National Army drove them out with the support of AMISOM.
