Significant Reduction in Fire Incidents Across Jammu Kashmir

Azadi Times: Alok Kumar, Additional Director General of Police (ADGP) Fire and Emergency Services (F&ES), announced that there has been a notable 31 percent decrease in fire incidents in Jammu Kashmir this year.

He reported that compared to 59,000 fire incidents last year, J&K has seen only 4,000 incidents this year, marking a substantial reduction over the past year, specifically from August 2022 to July 2023.

Kumar attributed this decline to the successful organization of 28,000 fire awareness events conducted by F&ES across various locations in J&K. Notably, over three lakh people have been trained in fire awareness through these events.

Kumar also revealed the F&ES’s future plans, including the intention to equip every household with a fire extinguisher, enabling residents to respond swiftly to fires until professional firefighters arrive. Training programs are ongoing, even involving Class 10th students to enhance fire response skills.

Additionally, ADGP F&ES emphasized that prompt first aid would be provided to anyone injured during a fire incident, ensuring that lives are safeguarded until they receive advanced medical treatment at the hospital.

These measures reflect F&ES’s commitment to reducing fire incidents and preventing loss of life, as reported by Kashmir News Observer (KNO).
