An immediate Project is being planned to bring fires that may erupt in and around cities under control.
The Fire Department of the Colombo Municipal Council has taken measures to help extinguish sudden fires that may erupt in towns and save lives. New fire fighters are to be recruited.
58 fire fighters who underwent training received permanent employment recently. Director of the Kalubowila Teaching Hospital Dr. Anil Jasinghe who participated in the passing out ceremony said that an ambulance can be summoned by dialing 110 during a road accident.
