Bhopal News: Bhopal (Representative of Navdunia). In the capital, the fire council’s rules are ignored by the municipality, which keeps the safety of the citizens at stake. There are no fire trucks and fire stations in the city as per population. In such a situation, timely relief and rescue operations become difficult in the event of a fire. Often, by the time the fire truck arrives, everything burns to ashes. Despite this, instead of 50, there is one fire truck for 80,000 people and two places have one fire station for three lakh people.
Say that according to the city’s current population, there should be four firefighters and one fire chief in the municipality, but the company doesn’t even have one. There are only two assistant firefighters in the company, but there should be at least eight. Also, according to the National Fire Advisory, there should be a fire station in a population of two lakh and an area of one to three km. But there are only 11 fire stations in the capital against a population of 28 lakh. But only eight of them are active. While one fire engine each is stationed at three fire stations of ISBT, Unani Safakhana and Junkyard. Adequate arrangements are lacking here. Not only this, the fire stations also cover an area of eight to ten km from them. Because of this, it takes longer to initiate relief and rescue operations in the event of a fire.
There should be a fire station in every area
The city currently has a total of 11 fire stations, including ISBT, Govindpura Industry Area, Pul Bogda, Chhola Fire Station, Old Junkyard, Gandhi Nagar Airport, Sant Hirdaram Nagar, Kolar, Mata Mandir, Unani Shafakhana and Fatehgarh Control Room, while in urban areas One was to be done according to each region. The faucet system was also installed only in Sarafa Chowk, it also could not be started. Apart from this, firemen do not even have modern gadgets and are extinguishing the fire using old traditional methods.
35 fire departments and water trucks for a population of 28 million
The municipality has a total of 35 fire engines and water tankers per population of 28 lakhs. But even of those, four to five vehicles are sent daily in VIP events. In New Market and Adampur Cantonment, one vehicle each has been deployed as a makeshift fire station. In such situations, they are further reduced to prevent incidents such as arson.
No staff for Rs 5.40 crore hydraulic platform
The number of multi-storey buildings also increases with the population of the city. Here, construction is underway on 20 to 22-story buildings. For help and rescue in case of fire in such buildings, the municipality has purchased a 170 feet high hydraulic system six months ago for ISK 5.40 million. Its ability is to extinguish fire up to 18 floors. But so far it has not been on the roads due to non-registration in the RTO. At the same time, there is no specialized staff for this. So far the staff has not been appointed nor trained to run it.
The company is constantly expanding the fire department. So help and rescue for fire in the whole city is easy. If there is any defect it will be fixed.
