The Ashram has obtained a 10,000 litre water-tanker, to provide a regular supply of water to local villages.
Equipped with fire fighting equipment, the tanker and the fire-fighting team, available for fire fighting 24 hour a day, have several times shown their efficiency.

In the peak season for fires temperatures are 48-50 degrees centigrade and the winds are strong and dry. During this time the Ashram fire brigade is called on 2-3 times a day and in the 2002 season they answered over 60 calls for help.

A dual use of the fire-truck is to transport water to the drought stricken remote villages. In May-June 2002 18,000 litres of water per day was distributed.
