The Kwara government says it would provide land for the establishment of the proposed Federal Fire Training School and regional office for the North Central Zone to be sited in Ilorin.
Gov. Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq said this on Wednesday when the Comptroller General of the Service, Dr Liman Ibrahim, paid him a courtesy visit at the Government House, Ilorin.
Abdulrazaq also said that additional fire service stations would be established in the North Senatorial District of the state to complement the ones in Ilorin and those in Omu Aran and Offa.
He said the government would also embark on capacity building for officers of the state fire service as a corollary to the ongoing renovation of the Fire Service Station in Ilorin being done by his administration.
Earlier, Ibrahim had thanked the governor for hosting the National Council on Fire as well as the ongoing renovation of the fire station.
He urged the governor to establish new fire stations in other senatorial districts of the state for prompt response to any fire outbreak in the state.
