|Bid to boost fire fighting module|
GUWAHATI, July 16 - In order to add teeth to the existing fire fighting module, the State Fire Service Organisation (SFSO) has submitted a proposal to the home department for setting up of a water hydrant system in Guwahati.
The system will ensure an underground water pipeline system, which can prove crucial while dousing fire in areas where fire tenders cannot get access to. “A large network of pipes within several outlets would also mean that the fire tenders can refill as and when required,” sources said.
The SFSO Director said vulnerability tests of all the structures in Guwahati are being done and notice will be sent to them if found wanting.
