Fires continue to cause enormous damage and result in huge costs despite the all preventive measures taken by authorities and individuals. Damage to buildings and vehicles account for the major part of this cost.
“The number of fire cases reported for the first half of the year 2017 is almost similar to that of last year.” Jones Madeleine, the Public Relations Officer at the Seychelles Fire and Rescue Service Agency (SFRSA), told TODAY when making available statistics about fire incidents for the year up to end of June.
Since the beginning of this year until June the SFRSA has received a total of 235 emergency calls. These include fire incidents, accidents, other emergency incidents and assistance. Among these five cases were false alarms.
