Two fire engines and about 14 firemen, will be stationed here initially. The department plans to purchase more vehicles in the future and station more personnel.

The firestation has been ready from late last year but could not be inauguration due to the Zilla Parishad elections that were held this January.

The Fire Station is now going to be inaugurated this Saturday, February 19th, at 10 am.  The Home Minister, R Ashoka is expected, and officials welcome residents from our ward to join in as well.
