Mock fire drills held at Bangalore railway station

Alarmed by the recent rise in fire accidents in trains, the Karnataka State Fire and Emergency Service, in collaboration with the Fire and Security Association of India, recently conducted a mock fire safety drill at Bangalore City Railway Station. The mock rescue began with evacuating passengers from a railway coach. They were then shifted to an ambulance for receiving first aid. The mock rescue saw volunteers working together with the fire service team to conduct the evacuation. The operation displayed different vehicles used for fire rescue in situations where a normal fire engine cannot be used – a jeep and a two wheeler bike to reach the narrowest lanes and other inaccessible places. Officers from the Karnataka State Fire Service also demonstrated the use of fire extinguishers and latest fire extinguishing technologies combining water, mist and foam to extinguish different types of fire. Also showcased were various patterns of water jets and the ways in which they could cool areas around the locations affected by fire. Various techniques for making water jets reach tall buildings were also shown.
