The Federal Government has cautioned the sub-nationals against abdicating their roles in firefighting, urging local and state governments to invest in fire services and emergency responses.
Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola gave the charge Tuesday in Abuja during the commissioning of the ‘Fire House’ and the Kubwa Metropolitan fire station.
He said; “The Federal Fire Service FFS has also been recalibrated spread-wise to enhance administrative and operational performances by creating 13 zonal headquarters after it had ensured that it had a presence in all the 36 States of the federation including the FCT. To this extent, it has built 13 zonal headquarters, one of which we are commissioning today.
State Governments should have well-equipped fire stations in all the local governments, as first responders, to put out fire at the putative stage, before it becomes a huge conflagration and wreak havoc.
