KOZHIKODE: The state government has turned a blind eye to the demand of  the people’s representatives and the merchant community in Koyilandy for a fully-equipped fire station in the region in the wake of  serious fire accidents there.  In the last three months alone,  there were four fire accidents  and help had to come from  Vadakara and Kozhikode fire stations.

Recently, the fire and rescue service personnel put out a blaze that broke out in a shopping complex there.  But the locals and police officials had to wait for over an hour for the officials to reach the spot.  

 

“Koyilandy MLA K. Dasan had in the last five years sent several proposals and documents of land identified for the fire station in Koyilandy to the Home Ministry, but there was no response. A year back,  Home Minister Ramesh Chennithala gave the nod for a  fire station, but till date no action has been initiated,”  said Mr Dasan.

“We have agreed to  provide the basic facilities needed to open the fire and rescue services unit as sought by the ministry,”  he said. A plot of 24 cents near Koyilandy old bus stand was identified for the station, which covers
almost 55 km  between Vadakara and Koyilandy stretch.
