The CM also launched an app titled ‘Thee’ for Fire and Rescue Services department, which will help in icnreasing response time during emergencies.
“To contact Fire and Rescue Department more easily and to inform them about the emergency situations such as fire accidents, flood, people caught in bore wells, to rescue animals, chemical and poisonous gas leakage the state government, for the first time in the country, had launched the new app for Fire and Rescue Department,” said the Chief Minister, after launching the app, at the Secretariat.
How the app works
The app, which was developed by Amtex Software Solutions Pvt Ltd, will have a response time less than 10 seconds where people can register the type of emergency in the app and the app will alert the nearest Fire and Rescue station.
The app will help greatly reduce the response time as it will directly contact the nearest Fire station, said the Chief Minister.
Along with launching the app, the Chief Minister also distributed 371 mobile tablets for Fire and Rescue Department personnel. The first mobile tablet was handed over to Director of Fire and Rescue Department MS Jaffar Sait.
