Fire prevention is of utmost importance

Accidents related to fire in our country have been on the rise. According to reports, 16,000 fire incidents took place in the last 10 years. The accidents occurred in various factories, slums and households. Fires in Tazreen Fashions, FR Tower, and, most recently, a plastic factory in Keraniganj—to name just a few—had all shook the nation to its core. It goes without saying that fire rules and regulations must be implemented to prevent such tragic consequences. 

Unfortunately, despite the high number of occurrences, the tragedies continue. I don’t understand why the authorities fail to take proper measures to save the innocent lives by preventing the fires. Haven’t we learned our lessons yet? How many more bodies need to burn before we take serious action? One can only imagine the extent of suffering the fire victims endure due to the lack of our safety measures.
