FFS boss tasks firemen on safety of lives, property
The Controller-General of the Federal Fire Service (FFS), Dr. Ibrahim Liman, has asked fire stations in Nigeria to forestall loss of lives and property during the Eid celebration.
In his Sallah message, Liman directed all zonal and state fire commanders to ensure all fire stations respond to emergencies within the quickest possible time.
Liman, in a statement signed by the service’s Public Relations Officer, Ugo Huan, called on the public to adhere to all fire safety guidelines.
He warned that fire could occur at any time, hence the need for all to apply necessary fire safety precautions during the period and to reach out to the nearest fire station on emergency numbers, 08032003557 and 112, in case of any emergency.
“The roasting of animals must be in an open space, gas cylinders should be kept outside the kitchen and cooking must not be left unattended.
“When going out, electrical appliances should be switched off, children must not be allowed to play with matches or go near fire and more importantly, a functional fire extinguisher should be at sight in the home,” he advised.
