Share

The Gujarat Fire Safety Compliance Portal (GujFireSafetyCoP) is a landmark initiative of the Government of Gujarat which aims at strengthening the fire-safety framework across the state. The initiative is spearheaded by the Urban Development and Urban Housing Department with support from Gujarat Institute of Disaster Management (GIDM), Directorate of Fire Prevention Services (DFPS), Gujarat State Institute for Fire Safety Training (GSIFST) with support of Chief Fire Offices and Regional Fire Offices across the state.

The Gujarat Fire Safety CoP initiative has two broad components –

  • Fire Safety Officers (FSOs) who are trained and enrolled for various building fire safety works like – Fire Safety Certificate Renewal, building inspection and fire safety drills. A cadre of such trained experts shall ensure that fire safety mechanisms are strengthened across the state.
  • Online Applications and Monitoring is the second component of the Gujarat Fire Safety CoP initiative and building owners/developers will now be able to make applications for all fire safety related services in online manner and authorities will have a transparent disposal of such applications.

The Gujarat Institute of Disaster Management has been entrusted with the responsibility of developing the portal, Capacity building of FSO, development of training courses for FSO and notifying the required changes to be made in Fire Act, Rules and Regulations.

To ensure that all agencies and personnel involved in the FSC approval and renewal process have the required competence to carry out the process effectively, it is necessary to develop a suitable training and assessment system for FSOs. This should not only cater to the members of the Fire Service but also to supporting agencies which include Fire Safety Officers, licensed agencies, etc, who form an important part of the process.
