OSHAssociation Nigeria Region Raises Concern Over the Fire Incident at Christ Embassy Headquarters in Lagos

The recent fire incident at the Christ Embassy Headquarters in Lagos has prompted the Regional President of OSHAssociation Nigeria Region, HRH. AMB. DR. Olusegun Aderemi FOSHA, to raise concerns and call for enhanced fire safety measures.

The fire, which broke out early on Sunday morning, quickly spread through multiple buildings within the church compound, causing significant damage. According to Margaret Adeseye, the Director of the Lagos State Fire and Rescue Service, the blaze was first reported at 7:27 am, and firefighters from Alausa and Ikeja fire stations were promptly dispatched to the scene.

The director explained that the church auditorium was found to be engulfed in flames, and the firefighters worked tirelessly to bring the fire under control. An excavator was also used to demolish certain parts of the building to ensure complete extinguishment and prevent further structural collapse. The cause of the fire has not yet been determined, and investigations are underway to ascertain its origin. “No casualties have been reported as of the time of the incident.

In meetings with the Chairman of the House Committee on Safety Standards and Regulation, Hon. Sulaiman Abubakar Gumi, and the Chief Registrar of the Supreme Court, Mrs. Hajo Sarki, the Regional President expressed his concerns over the incident. He emphasised the need for relevant bodies, church authorities, and individuals to prioritise fire safety, as such incidents can occur anywhere.

Notably, the Regional President spoke about the incoming. All-in-one firefighting extinguisher, which he believes can significantly improve emergency response and fire prevention measures in the region. This innovative device combines multiple fire-fighting capabilities into a single, compact unit, making it a versatile tool in the event of a fire.

The All-in-One firefighting extinguisher is designed to tackle different classes of fires, including Class A (combustible materials), Class B (flammable liquids), Class C (flammable gases), Class D (burning metals), Class E (electric fires), and Class F (cooking oils and fats), providing a comprehensive solution for various fire scenarios. Additionally, it incorporates features such as a built-in fire alarm system, wireless connectivity, and remote monitoring capabilities, allowing for faster detection and more coordinated emergency response.

The Regional President highlighted the potential of this advanced firefighting equipment to enhance preparedness and resilience against fire-related incidents. By investing in such innovative technologies and prioritising fire safety, he believes the community can better protect lives and property and prevent tragedies like this.

The call for improved fire safety measures by OSHAssociation Regional President serves as a timely reminder of the importance of proactive planning and the adoption of cutting-edge fire suppression solutions to safeguard lives and properties at home, offices, public spaces, and places of worship in Nigeria and beyond.
