Fire Safety

Fire Safety is one issue that is never awarded the attention it deserves in our country. Whenever we travel or even when we are out on a walk, we are always aware of our surroundings and our mind is always alert about everything that is going on around us. We are always aware that we are not safe on road or while travelling. However, in our everyday lives, what we fail to realize is that we are at risk even when we are in our own offices and homes, let alone hospitals, cinema halls, malls, multiplexes, and a range of other places that we always take for granted day in and day out, in spite of fire risk.

A survey carried out by the Fire Department in a metro city showed that more than 95 per cent of residential, commercial and other buildings that saw a considerable amount of people congregating there were at serious risk from fire hazards. The recent fire at the Mantralaya in Mumbai which saw innocent visitors and employees burn to death, and the terrible fire in a hospital in Kolkata which saw 81 people including patients face a fiery death are only a couple of examples that point out to the apathetic approach that we have towards fire safety norms.

In spite of these and even more incidents, both the Government as well as the common man has not made any changes that would point towards the respect one has for life and property. Property can yet be reconstructed and compensated for, but what about the loss of life? Can a few measly thousands of rupees from the Government truly compensate for the loss of a precious human life? A life once lost is lost forever.

The first ever fire safety consultancy firm, “FIRE CHIEF” - Fire Safety Consultants and Engineers is now here to change the way fire safety is regarded in the country. Established by an experienced firefighter who knows all there is to fire safety and saving lives, the firm is set to change fire safety for the better.
