The Federal Fire Service (FFS) has trained 60 State Fire Fighters during a two-week intensive course on Fire Prevention and Code Enforcement against fire invidence during the Yuletide and beyond.

“The training at the National Fire Academy (NFA) Sheda Abuja is in keeping with the commitment of the FFS to boost relevant knowledge and skill on the fire fighters towards domestication of the code and its enforcement,” FFS Assistant Controller (Corporate Services) Elechi Collins said.

While issuing certificates to course participants, FFS Controller General Anebi Joseph Garba said that the Service has offered to organise Fire Safety Plan Examiners/Code Enforcement and Fire Investigation trainings for the benefit of fire service personnel in the states.

He charged the participants to take back to their states all that they had acquired as ambassadors of the college and impact positively on other colleagues in order to ensure effective fire prevention and code enforcement at state and local government levels.

The FFS boss re-stated his commitment towards turning around the NFA to a world-class institute that would attract fire fighters from the West Africa sub-region and beyond.

Earlier, the commandant of the academy, ACG Olusola Basiri, had admonished the participants to keep re-reading the course materials in order to become proficient and imbibe the Fire Safety Code as a Bible of study which contains the minimum safety standards in order to improve on the new assignment.
