Yesterday, we took a stock of the state of creating a Fire Station for New Town, Rajarhat. Few weeks ago, we had a meeting with Fire Directorate and our engineers and architects went to a Consultant Architect to design a state-of-the-art modern fire station for New Town. The land has been earmarked in Action Area 1 and the design parameters were frozen. In the next board meeting scheduled on 28th March, we will formally appoint the consultant for making the design.
The modern fire station will be able to keep tall cranes and other equipment. There will be control room and a parade ground too. There will be dormitory on first floor from where firemen may slide down a pole in emergencies.
