Substandard electrical appliances responsible for the increase in fire outbreak in Lagos-LASG

The Lagos State Government has identified the influx of substandard electrical appliances into Lagos as one of the major causes of the increased rate of fire incident in the state. ‎
The Government in a statement signed by the Commissioner for Special Duties and Intergovernmental Relations, Oluseye Oladejo, said preliminary investigation by his office and the State Fire Service Director, Rasak Fadipe, revealed that installation of substandard electrical appliances in most cases trigger fire outbreaks, adding that all hands to be on deck to forestall future occurrences. The government called on the Standard Organization of Nigeria SON to rise of to its responsibility to check the standard of materials coming into the state.

The commissioner urged residents to be more vigilant and look out for only quality electrical appliances in the market as well as ensure that they patronise only qualified electricians to install same in their homes. He also urged Electricity Generation (Gencos) and Distribution Companies (Discos) to look into the power voltage made available to customers to prevent power surge resulting from high voltage which could cause fire outbreak. He said the state government will continue do everything within the confines of the law to ensure that lives and property of its citizenry are secured.

“The government is not in any way comfortable in the number of fire incidents that have occurred in the last few months and therefore government will not look the other way while this increase in fire disasters continues. People should be more proactive to make sure that they switch off electrical appliances when they are going to bed and when they are also leaving their offices. This will go a long way in reducing, if not totally eliminating the incidence of fire outbreaks in the state which has unfortunately led to the loss of lives and property in recent time. Fire outbreaks in our homes, markets and offices are totally unacceptable and we must do something about it,” he said.

GREAtson Vieriche CJ said...

He is absolutely right! We should stop patronizing substandard electrical appliances and always be careful to switch off those not in use at any given moment especially when we are about to go to sleep.

The Government. Always pushing blames. What about regulations? Are building fire codes considered? How many buildings have adequate fire extinguishers and hoses (which comes from Government water supply). Do we have water hydrants? Fire service is also poor due to lack of water and adequate equipment. Yes, they might be right on the low quality electrical but what happens when this is not the case. When Ebeano in Lekki burnt down, i heard the water from the fire service was in trickles.
