Today, on April 14th, the entire country is observing Fire Service Day to acknowledge the zeal and dedication of fire officers who save property and countless lives every year. This is also an occasion to remember the supreme sacrifice of those Fire Service personnel who laid down their lives on the altar of duty and pay homage to their memory.
A&N Fire Services committed to saving lives by preventing fires, spreading fire safety awareness and firefighting. It also plays a crucial role in disaster preparedness and disaster management, being one of the first responders in any disaster. The courage and commitment exhibited by the A&N Police fire Service personnel in professionally responding to fire calls in this UT merits accolades.
On the occasion of Fire Service Day, I congratulate all personnel of the A&N Fire Service for their commendable performance. I am confident that the Fire Service week from April 14th to April 20th, 2018 will generate public awareness about fire safety and encourage the residents of A&N Islands to take preventive measures.
