The Dry Season has gradually set in, particularly in the Northern part of Nigeria and the harmattan is becoming strong. This to any Disaster Manager that is proactive brings to fore the risk of Fire Disaster. Thus, the Minna Operations Office of NEMA line with Disaster Risk Reduction strategy executed a sensitization rally against Fire Disaster in Minna. The rally which took off from Tunga round about touched the major areas of Minna metropolis to the Kure Ultra-modern market.
Men of the Federal Fire Service, Federal Road Safety Corp, Market unions and EMVs added colour to the rally. High point of the event was the practical demonstration of how to quench fire using fire extinguisher and fire blanket. Members of the market Union’s were also asked to practice the demonstration to confirm their understandings on the demonstrations.
Fliers/handbills were also distributed to individuals containing ways to prevent Fire Disasters and also emergency numbers that can be contacted in the case of any Fire Disaster.
