Disaster prevention Emergency Response

HARMATTAN SEASON, FEMA APPEALS TO FCT RESIDENTS TO OBSERVE EARLY WARNING SIGNS.

26 November 2021

The Federal Capital Territory Emergency Management Agency,(FEMA), wants residents to equip their homes, offices, business places, and cars with basic fire defense equipment to curtail fire outbreaks.

The Director-General of the Agency, Alhaji Abbas Idriss gave the advise on a Television programme in Abuja.
Alhaji Idriss, who emphasized that homes should be equipped with extinguishers and fire blankets, warned that gas cylinders should be kept outside the kitchen.

Noting that the annual market fires in the FCT, have started with the Kubwa market incident, the FEMA boss called for the segmenting of markets, to keep people using inflammable and combustible items away from other traders.

Frowning at a situation where some traders live within the market, the FEMA boss called on the Abuja Market Management Limited,(AMML), to install central circuit breakers in markets and also to ensure markets are evacuated at the close of trading.

On the response time to emergencies, Alhaji Idriss explained that the Agency required more ambulances, funds, and manpower to reduce the response time from 5 to 3 minutes.
