Schools sans fire pro­tec­tion equip­ments

Pakistan Observer - - NATIONAL - SHAFFAAT MA­LIK

TALAGANG—Govt and private schools con­tinue to be neg­li­gent to­wards fire safety ar­range­ments in Talagang area. In many govern­ment and private schools fire ex­tin­guish­ers, even buck­ets full of sand and wa­ter have not been ar­ranged.

In most govern­ment schools, there is no equip­ment for fire safety and wher­ever present, it is in­ad­e­quate for the pur­pose as there is one fire ex­tin­guish­ing for the whole school. Only few private schools have proper fire safety equip­ment. So­cial cir­cles have ap­pealed au­thor­i­ties to make sure that all schools have suf­fi­cient fire safety equip­ment to cope with emer­gences.

While on the other hand, the agen­cies en­gaged in the busi­ness of il­le­gal gas cylin­der fill­ing and diesel pa­trol fill­ing, are op­er­at­ing in al­most all key places in en­tire Tehsil Talagang. Sev­eral bloody in­ci­dents have oc­curred in these ar­eas but no action has been taken to­wards clo­sure of these busi­nesses.
