Fire Safety and Search & Rescue Trainings
Fire safety and search and rescue training is an essential requirement for every first responder in order to protect life, reduce suffering and property loss. Recent and earlier fire incidents have clearly demonstrated some of the major shortcomings in our fire fighting capabilities along the length and breadth of the country. The recent fire incident in a hospital in Eastern India has added another dangerous possibility and dimensions to fire accident. We need to have a serious look at the capabilities of our fire services in this context.
The role of fire services is to extinguish fire, rescue trapped persons, provide medical first aid and also respond to the various man-made fire accidents and natural disasters. The roles cannot be performed well until and unless sufficient training is imparted to the fire service personnel.
By keeping this in mind, training to first responders are being organized by GSDMA to ensure necessary exposure to develop their knowledge, skills, attitude, physical fitness, vision and mental alertness that they require to carry out their jobs efficiently.
The detail on different training programmes being organized for first responders by GSDMA in the State is as under;
1. Fire Safety Training to Rapid Action Force Personnel (RAF)
Rapid Action Force (RAF) stationed at Ahmedabad, Gujarat with the personnel strength of over 1,000. This can be a very useful resource in case of an emergency if they are properly trained.
Fire fighting and rescue activities require special training so GSDMA has coordinated the fire fighting training to 211 nos. of RAF personnel through Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) at Kotarpur, Ahmedabad. The batch wise detail regarding training is given below;
