Greater Noida: Despite the inspection by Chief Fire Officer, there has been no improvement to rectify the fire safety system in the last month at Aishwaryam Society, Gaur City 2, Greater Noida West. The residents said that that proper attention needs to be given to the issue.
At the request of the residents, the Chief Fire Officer had inspected the fire safety system of the society on September 16 and shared an inspection report with the builder of the society.
The report mentioned that in towers C and D, there has to be an automatic fire detector and fire alarm system. In society, there has to be a staff to use the fire safety equipment. Hosepipes are not working. There should be a proper fire safety sign in society and an announcement system has to be installed. Fire safety equipment was found inadequate.
On August 27, residents raised the issue of the non-functioning and inefficient fire safety system in their society and wrote a letter to Senior Fire Officer to inspect the society's fire safety systems.
According to the residents, the society does not have fire alarm safety systems in society. Hose pipes are not sufficiently long. Basements 1 and 2 have very few fires extinguisher. Residents said that it has been a month but there is no improvement. Around 400 residents live in the society and this negligence puts their safety at risk.
Arnimesh Kumar, AOA President shared, “It was very important to audit the fire infrastructure of Aishwaryam Society and it is more important to fix it by providing an adequate amount of fire extinguishers on every floor along with developing a process plan for evacuation and providing a response in case of a fire outbreak in any of the towers or common area. It has been a month and still, we are waiting for improvement.”
Ajay Kumar Singh, Fire Safety Officer said, “We inspected the society with the residents and all the safety issues will be fixed. We shared an audit report to the builder and the builder shared a few letters to us in this period of one month and all the problems will be fixed.”
