FG Plans on Decentralizing Fire Emergency Response Centres
By Adeke Chukwuka
The Federal Government plans to improve emergency response times by decentralising fire response centers and increasing the number of response points with firetrucks. Dr. Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo, the Minister of Interior, shared this information while visiting the Federal Fire Service (FFS) national headquarters in Abuja.
The minister emphasised that the Federal Fire Service (FFS) plays a crucial role in protecting Nigerian lives and property, stressing the need for swift emergency response due to the rapid and destructive nature of fire accidents. He stated that “We will do everything humanly possible to decentralise our emergency response centres because, as first responders, it takes efficiency to tackle fire accidents in good time.
“Let us ensure that we do capacity training, be more committed to our duties, we will equip our officers with modern techniques and modern equipment to be able to accomplish their tasks., We will make sure that we invest in the fire service,” the minister said
The Controller General of the FFS, Abdulganiyu Jaji, highlighted challenges including attacks on firefighters, staff housing shortages, budget constraints, and the need for a proper national headquarters.
He pledged the FFS’s loyalty and expressed a desire to collaborate with the minister to fulfil promises, especially in improving fire and emergency response. Jaji also urged the minister to bring the Fire Service closer to the people to reduce response time, a critical challenge they face.
