October 10 - Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha ("K" Line) provided free ocean transportation of an ambulance and a fire engine donated by Fujisawa-city Fire Department in Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan, to the Republic of El Salvador.

El Salvador has long been faced with a shortage of fire engines, having only 19 units in the whole nation. Recognising such a situation, Fujisawa-city decided to donate a ambulance and fire engine to El Salvador, which were loaded onto "K" Line's pure car carriers (PCCs) at Yokohama.
