Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Tuesday inaugurated a Fire Park and launched a dynamic online portal, AgnishamaSeva of Odisha Fire Service. The Fire Park is an initiative to bring awareness about fire safety measures, an official said. Located inside the premises of Odisha Fire and Disaster Academy in Bhubaneswar, it will be opened to the public every Saturday from 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm.
Some of the activities include demonstrating the use of fire-fighting equipment, rescue and disaster operations, exhibition hall, screening of films, and distribution of leaflets on fire safety. Students from schools and colleges will be the focus group, the official said. Inaugurating the park through video conference, Patnaik said, "It's no doubt an effort in the right direction to create a safety compliant citizenry."
The CM said that 16 fire-related services are now available to the citizens on the online mode in the dynamic portal www.odishafshgscd.gov.in. He further hoped that the fire service department will continue to prioritize the feedback mechanism under the Mo Sarkar (my government) initiative to ensure hassle-free and time-bound services to the public.
He also appreciated the role of Odisha Fire Service in fighting the pandemic and commended the fire service personnel for the massive plasma donation for the treatment of critical COVID-19 patients. Patnaik said that all these efforts continued uninterrupted in spite of the pre-occupation in rescue and restoration work during cyclone Amphan and high floods in August 2020.
The CM further said that the Odisha Fire Service has earned glorious distinction for its outstanding services on rescue and disaster response. Patnaik hoped that the Odisha Fire Service will continue to adopt technological innovations and bring about transformational changes in the public delivery system. DG Fire Services Satyajit Mohanty said 3,000 fire service personnel are always ready to meet any challenges, anytime.
