Hindustani Fire Department has lost and found a lot in the last 80 years
The Hindustani Fire Service saw so many ups and downs in the history of nearly 80 years of history. Lured millions of lives trapped in the fire of fire from the fire. With the lives of thousands of his firefighters at stake, he saved the wealth of billions and trillions of the country from being destroyed in the flames of a huge fire. Without worrying about themselves and the loved ones left behind.
The firemen whose lives went on playing with fire. Such a Hindustan fire department found something lost in the years 1941-42, that is, almost 80 years before the Second World War. Its account is recorded in the pages of history. Even today, the books are recorded in the same true risky stories of indomitable courage, dedication and sacrifice of the fire workers, who even after listening to the greatest braves can be swept away.
Since today’s date is the most precious and memorable for Hindustani fire service. That is why this celebration is celebrating “Fire Service Week”, that is, fire service week. On such a special occasion Let’s take a look at the past, present and to some extent the future of the Indian fire service.
Delhi fire service chief and director Atul Garg said in an exclusive conversation with TV9 Bharatvarsha on this memorable occasion, “Fire does not spare anyone in the world. Human being or strong iron metal. All are weak in front of fire. The firepower has the power to withstand the death of such a fire, to face the shoals of fire. ” According to him, “Actually, one reason why firefighters are not afraid of jumping into the fire is also because of the helpless people and worse dangerous situations. That means the first challenge on the shoulders of the firefighter is to save the trapped in front safely. In such a situation, firefighters care, but with the hope of securing the front first. “
Delhi Fire Service – Before and After World War II
This service was started in Delhi even before the Second World War. Then (till 1942) means British period i.e. slave in India. There were only 2 fire service centers in Delhi. One in Delhi Municipal Committee and the other in New Delhi Municipal Committee area. Both the fire stations used to operate the same committees. After the end of World War II, the Delhi Fire Service was given the rank of Provincial Force. That means, under the changes after the Second World War, the Delhi fire service was increased to four fire stations, 186 firemen and officers and 14 fire tenders. Just two and a half years after that, i.e. on 14 April 1944, the Fort Stikine accident occurred on the ship standing on the Mumbai beach. In which 66 brave soldiers of Mumbai Fire Brigade were martyred. Then it was decided that no matter how big improvements should be made in fire service in every major city of India.
The horrific accident that became the “text”
That means the huge fire on that ship and then serial bomb blasts during the extinguishment of the ship opened the ears of the British rule. About 78-79 years ago, the devastation of fire on the Mumbai coastline served as a “lesson” for the Hindustani fire service. In those days, it was decided that the maintenance of fire safety equipment is a very important link to reduce the risk of fire. Tributes were paid to the martyrs of fire service at the Fire Safety Management Academy in Rohini Sector-14, Delhi during “Fire Service Week” commemorating the same incident.
Delhi Fire Service Chief Atul Garg says, “Today, the headquarters of Delhi Fire Service is located in the building at Connaught Place, it was established in 1952, about 69 years ago. Whereas radio communication started in fire service in 1969.
Time changed everything with me
Delhi Fire Service Deputy Chief Fire Officer, Dr. Sanjay Kumar Tomar, says, “Firearm service’s feet actually grew in the 1990s-91. When a special plan was brought to those days for its progress. Also, when the Delhi Fire Service was brought under the national capital i.e. Delhi Government in 1994. Prior to that, the Delhi fire service was working under the Municipal Corporation of Delhi. ” He states that, “Delhi Fire Act 2007 and Rules 2010 were made thereafter. However, this first central government had brought the Delhi Fire Prevention and Fire Safety Act-1986. Which was gazetted on 12 December 1986 (after the horrific fire at Hotel Siddharth in Delhi).
This act was later made effective by notifying on 1 July 2010 as Delhi Fire Service Act-2007 (Delhi Act 2 of 2009) and Delhi Fire Service Rules 2010 ”. Meaning as time changed and requirements increased. As such, Rango-o-Surat of the Delhi Fire Service also changed with the passage of time in the books and documents of the law and order.
