Post-mock drill, response time of fire


A proposal was already doing the rounds for construction of four new fire stations, of which sites for two have been earmarked. The Ministry of Home Affairs had also written to the MC about starting a fire academy in the city that could cater to the region.

The mega mock drill that was held on Wednesday revealed gaps in the disaster management capabilities in the Tricity. A review meeting of NDMA officials with the officials of Chandigarh, Punjab and Haryana was also held on Thursday. The deputy commissioners of the Tricity will soon submit a report of the mock drill with their observations.
