KOZHIKODE:  The state government will take steps to train more civil volunteers in rescue operations with a view to supporting the Fire and Rescue Services wing, Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan has said.

Inaugurating the 36th State convention of the Kerala Fire Services Association (KFSA) at Nalanda auditorium here on Sunday, Vijayan said: “The Fire and Rescue Services wing too is gearing up with such action plans to improve the training of interested civil volunteers.”

Describing the dedication and expertise of the rescue operators as the key factor for their excellence in disaster management, Vijayan said the department was getting all the deserving support from the government to improve its field-level efficiency. The government had already spent a huge portion of its fund for purchasing high-end fire fighting equipment for the department to modernise it, he said. Urging the rescue operators to be vigilant against the elements of corruption and bribery, Vijayan said the Fire and Rescue Services force was one of the best performing wings in the State winning the attention of the government. ‘‘Those joining the force today are well educated and it ultimately improves the efficiency of the whole force for better performance,’’ he said.
