Lagos training to equip firefighters

07 November 2014, 17:27

Lagos - The Lagos State Government has commenced an intensive training programme for fire fighters in the state in order to enhance their firefighting skills and improve the agency’s operational efficiency.

Commissioner for Home Affairs and Culture, Oyinlomo Danmole, stated that the training was part of the package for the procurement of new firefighting engines and equipment.

He explained that the need to enhance the competency of the officers and prolong the live and usage of the newly acquired equipment necessitated investment in training of fire personnel, explaining it would enhance the operational efficiency of the Fire Service personnel.

He said at the end of the programme, participants would acquire skills and certification that would be useful to them even after retirement.

Danmole added that expatriates with several years of experience in firefighting operation were on ground for the training programme.

The commissioner advised the participants to make the most of the opportunity provided and improve their performance, stating also that they would be expected to train those coming behind them.

Permanent Secretary of Ministry of Home Affairs and Culture, Omotayo Amoke Olabenjo, enjoined participants to justify government investment by updating their skills and level of professional competence.
