Disturbed by recurrent fire incidents across Lagos, the State Fire Service is planning to start a door-to-door sensitization campaign about fire accident prevention across the state. Director of the Service, Mr Rasak Fadipe, told the News Agency of Nigeria that the campaign will not just take a regular format of just addressing the press, but also one-on-one information sharing on precautionary prevention against fire outbreak.
He said “The frequent fire outbreak in the state needs to be stemmed. The recent fire incident at Lawanson, Surulere Area, which claimed seven lives is one too many. Everybody, including the state governor, is worried.
“The fire service is not resting too; we have decided that we need to move beyond response to fire calls and embark on aggressive enlightenment on fire prevention,” he added.
Fadipe enjoined residents of the state to be mindful of the use of burglary proofs, especially at night, advising residents to be careful and take necessary precaution to prevent fire outbreak.
“If fire is going to happen, let it be in unusual situation that is beyond what anybody can control,” he said.
