Noida: 131 Societies Lack Proper Fire Safety Equipment

In a recent inspection, authorities in Noida have found that 131 residential societies lack adequate fire safety equipment, raising significant concerns about residents' safety. The findings were part of a broader fire safety audit conducted across the city to ensure compliance with safety regulations.

The audit revealed that these societies either lacked essential fire safety equipment such as fire extinguishers, hydrants, and smoke detectors, or had non-functional systems. Many buildings were also found to have blocked or poorly maintained emergency exits, which could hinder evacuation efforts during an emergency.

The Noida Authority has issued notices to these societies, demanding immediate rectification of the identified deficiencies. Society managements have been instructed to install or repair fire safety equipment and ensure proper maintenance to comply with fire safety standards. Failure to do so could result in penalties and further legal action.

Residents of these societies have expressed concern over the findings, urging management committees to prioritise their safety and comply with the regulations promptly. The fire department has emphasised the importance of regular maintenance and drills to ensure residents are prepared in case of a fire emergency.

This revelation underscores the ongoing challenges in enforcing fire safety norms in residential buildings. The Noida Authority has vowed to conduct follow-up inspections to ensure compliance and improve the overall safety of residential areas. The authorities are also planning awareness campaigns to educate residents and management committees about the critical importance of fire safety measures.
