Subject: Re: Missing Fire Tenders

Dear All,

Lot was said about preparedness of Fire Department to meet any emergency in the City of Delhi . Unfortunately like any other Department the Fire Department was least prepared to handle the day. The malaba after pruning of trees in Sector C, Pocket -1 Vasant Kunj was lying in a corner of the service lane. Some how some crackers landed there and ignited fire. The fire was furocious as the leaves had dried up. The worry was that the spot where the dried pruning of trees was lying had underground Gas pipe line. The Security Guards and Residents started called Fire Department by about 9.20 pm. Very often the phone was unanswered and finally I had to make a call to PCR.

In the meanwhile sensing danger, the young childern came together and started pouring water on the fire and could doudse the fire. In the meanwhile by about 10.00 pm the PCR came to the spot. But till the time of writing thsi mail there is no sign of Fire Tenders. My worry is that had it been a major fire, I am sure damage would have been much more and the Fire Department would have been busy in creating a file and giving interviews to the Press blaming every one.

May I ask what action you propose to initiate against erring Fire Officers who at the first instance did not pick up the call at No. 101 and thereafter having come to know the incident failed to deploy the fire tender on the spot?

This shows that the Governance is at it lowest ebb and no one is respossible to none.
