Sanction to install 21 detectors at a cost of Rs. 2.70 lakh

The Chief Minister’s camp office in Begumpet will soon be transformed into a fire-resistant building with the government deciding to install the latest fire safety systems.

Administrative sanction was given to install 21 wireless smoke detectors at a cost of over Rs.2.70 lakh at the camp office.

These detectors will be connected to a wireless smoke detector control panel, through which security men will get an alert in case of a fire breakout, say officials. Security personnel could either put out the flames with the help of 20 portable fire extinguishers that have already been installed in the building or call the fire control room. The detectors will also help the security personnel locate the origin of fire, they say.
