MALLS MANDATORY TO HAVE FIRE STATION IN THEIR PREMISES

malls-fire-stnTo tackle fire emergency cases in a better way, the fire fighting department has come up with the idea of asking malls to set up mini fire station at their premises. Keeping in mind the inadequate number of existing fire stations to tackle emergencies and the lack of space to build new ones, the fire fighting department would be asking all upcmong malls to set up their own mini fire stations in cases of emergencies. According to the international standards, Mumbai needs at least 115 fire stations while presently there are only 33. Fire officials attribute this shortage to lack of space. They feel that the move to enlist the help of malls to create basic infrastructure for single unit fire stations which consist of one fire engine, one tanker and an ambulance would be quite successful. While at present the fire fighting department would be requesting the malls to construct these stations, if not followed, they would move ahead to make it a mandatory step. Bureau report – NMTV.
