The silent heroes of urban infrastructure

If there is one discovery that has shaped all of humankind, it is the discovery of fire. Fire gave humans the edge they needed, a weapon, a force. Whether it was protection for cave dwellers or sowing the seeds of the Industrial revolution fire continues to shape our lives. The discovery of fire also comes with an inherent risk; fire is dangerous but not unmanageable.


City planners, activists, safety engineers have started taking into account the various dangers associated with urban living. One of the most prominent risks is that of a fire accident. When the Carlton Towers, a high-rise building in Bangalore caught fire in 2010, a lot of discussion was on the subject of safety. Citizens initiatives and the government regulations are shaping modern cities. 2010, 11 or even 2017, taking fire safety seriously has never been optional. Each day, alarming statistics await us in form of news pieces, obituaries and tragedies. Carlton or Cuffe Parade, fire accidents are a reality that need to be addressed.


Fires have been rated as the 5th largest risk in Indian industry. But, with growing awareness, Industrial complexes and residential buildings have undertaken specific measures to aid the firefighting teams to take quick and swift action so that damage to life and property are contained.
