Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) Mayor Atiqul Islam said, at least one person has to discharge his duty wearing fire extinguishing dress in each building. That means there should be one person as fire fighter worker. If necessary security personnel of the building will be trained.
The Mayor said these at a press conference titled ‘Capital at risk of fire’ at Gulshan club in the capital on Tuesday.
Atiqul Islam said, City Corporation will conduct drive very soon to see whether the emergency exit ways are okay or not in the buildings. He also emphasized on appointing one fire fighter in each stair of the high rise building.
To the city dwellers he said, let City Corporation be informed if emergency exit way or stair is locked in any building. We will make it open to public and take action. Time has come to work, to check buildings. City Corporation will prepare a format. At first we will see whether there is fire exit or not. There are problems in the exit ways of schools in the capital. We will look into the matter.
Mayor Atiqul Islam said, I would request school authority to build emergency exit way, if there is not take immediate measures. We will go to the field to check that.
