Gujarat Govt to create new vast cadre of private fire safety officersOctober 01, 2020
Gandhinagar: In the wake of growing urbanisation, Chief Minister Vijay Rupani has taken an important decision to create a new vast cadre of private fire safety officers with a view to reducing the workload of municipal fire brigade officers.
The government is developing online and offline course modules to train young engineers in civil, mechanical, electrical in fire disaster management in fire safety for different types of buildings, namely residential, commercial, educational, hospital and industrial. The civic bodies will create panel of such private practitioners in fire safety.
While the NOC is being made compulsory to be renewed every six months, the new cadre can independently issue and renew No Objection Certificate (NOC). This will save the builders and owners from making rounds of the municipal corporations, municipalities and local self-government every six months, and hasten the process as well. They can choose an independent fire safety officer of their own choice.
The new cadre is being created under Section-12 of the Gujarat Fire Prevention and Life Safety Measures Act-2013. The revolutionary move is considered as unique initiative as part of Atmanirbhar Bharat – Atmanirbhar Gujarat.
