FCTA to reposition Fire Service




The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA), says it would reposition the FCT Fire Service on the path of improved service delivery.

Director, FCT Fire Service, Julius Opetunsin who disclosed this while speaking to journalists on the sidelines of a retreat organized for management staff of the Service at Karu, stated that the event would enable them go higher in the discharge of their duties.

Opetunsin also pointed that while fire outbreak was almost impossible to stop, he was determined to refocusing the efforts of Service on fire prevention and enforcement, instead of fire fighting:

Director, Legal Services under the Abuja Metropolitan Management Council (AMMC), Isa Bin Abdullahi, who also spoke, said that the training was meant to improve human and material capacity of staff of the Service with a view to ensuring effective service delivery.

According to Abdullahi, the FCT Administration could enforce a home fire extinguisher from the inception of granting building plan approvals to ensure even home has the fire-fighting equipment to save lives and property.

On recovery of assets of the Service, Abdullahi revealed that a process was on for the recovery of all property of the Service across the FCT.
