Big buildings to have fire officers

 Delhi Fire Service plans to make it mandatory for all major buildings in the city to have a dedicated fire officer in the coming days, while making it compulsory for all buildings to get their fire fighting certified every two years.

“We will make it mandatory for all the major buildings to appoint a dedicated fire officer,” said A K Sharma, director, Delhi Fire Services (DFS) while speaking at the three day ‘Safety Convention’ organised by the Institute of Engineers, Delhi State Centre and Safety and Quality Forum on Thursday.

In order to reduce the response time, DFS has set a target of setting up 16 more fire stations to increase the current number of 54 to 70 by the end of the current financial year.
