Udhampur/IBNS: Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha today attended the Passing-out  Parade of 669 cadets of J&K Fire and Emergency Services at SKPA, Udhampur.

Speaking on the occasion, the Lt Governor extended his best wishes to all trainee firefighters who successfully completed their training, and asked them to perform their duty with the highest degree of commitment and sincerity for ensuring the safety of people.

“FireFighters place their own lives at risk in order to protect the citizens. Fire & Emergency services personnel are real-life superheroes”, the Lt Governor said.

“Carry forward the rich legacy of courage and bravery, and come out as a formidable force to deal with emergency situations,” he asserted.


The up-gradation of all facilities of fire and emergency services and provision of modern fire tenders and rescue equipment was ensured by Sinha.

Continuous training of fire services personnel, and keeping them aware of the changing fire safety norms is the need of the hour, he said while adding the J&K administration will provide every possible support to set up a dedicated Fire  Academy to further enhance their capability to confront the future challenges and hazards.

The Police Academy at Udhampur has a long history of producing brave police personnel who are doing commendable jobs in ensuring a safe and secure environment for the people of J&K, and securing national unity & integrity through counter-insurgency operations; maintaining peace, law and order, the Governor of J&K said.
