Muzaffarpur firefighting service understaffed and under-resourced


Muzaffarpur has a population of around 48 lakhs and the district has thousands of houses, factories, gas stations, big business showrooms. However, in such a district, currently only 41 firefighters are available, and of these 41 firefighters, only 30 firefighters are present at the station headquarters. Ten of them are assigned to VIP seats, and the remaining post is currently vacant.

According to a report released by Dainik Jagran, the district currently has 24 fire fighting vehicles, seven of which are large but are over 15 years old. Apart from that, the other 17 are small hybrid technology firefighting vehicles.

According to fire officer Santosh Kumar, the district currently needs 100 fire-fighting vehicles, and for this, a letter has already been written to the chief minister of the state. In the same letter, including other resources, the government of Bihar requested a firefighter helicopter and a firefighter ball motorcycle in the district. Santosh Kumar says the district firefighting office has about two acres of land and a helipad can easily be built on the office roof. Fire Helicopters can easily control fires in important places in the district, which is why we asked the government.
