Say the entire belt does not have a fire station

Pulwama: The residents of Rohmoo area in Rajpora hamlet of south Kashmir’s Pulwama district have demanded a fire service station for their area.

The residents of the area said that there are around 20-25 villages around Rohmoo where thousands of households are putting up but the area is yet to get this basic facility.

The residents said that the nearest fire station for them is at Pulwama which is around 10 KM away and at the time of any fire incident, they have to wait for hours for the fire tenders to reach the spot.

“By the time, the fire service vehicle reaches Rohmoo and its adjacent areas, property worth lakhs gets damage as it takes around 1 hour for fire tenders to reach to the spot,” Mudasir Ahmad, a local resident said.

He said that the people of Rohmoo had approached successive governments for setting up the fire service station at Rohmoo, but to no avail.

The residents said that during recent years they had lost property worth crores due to the lack of a fire service station in their area.

They said that even last year some fire incidents took place in the area which could have been controlled on time, had there been a fire service station.

They requested higher ups to look into the matter and set up fire service station in Rohmoo area so that locals won’t have to face inconveniences in case of an emergency.
