Mumbai | Updated: August 6 2016 2:50 am Top News Maharashtra the country’s most urbanised state is a sitting duck for fire disasters with high rises petrol pumps LPG stations firecracker shops and saw mills running without the mandatory fire safety apparatus in place according to a report of the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) A CAG performance audit report on fire services in Maharashtra’s cities placed before the state legislature Friday has found gross anomalies and inadequacies The Fire Services Cell functions under Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis-led Urban Development department Indicating that 78 per cent of the development funds marked for purchase of specialised fire appliances rescue vehicles and equipment in eight agglomerates including Mumbai Navi Mumbai Nashik Pune Aurangabad Amravati and Nagpur between 2010 and 2015 remained unspent the CAG auditors have rapped the government for an acute shortage of fire stations Even as norms require a fire station per ten kilometers in urban areas the auditors found in seven cities a fire station was available per 37 square kilometers In Mumbai the situation was slightly better with one station available per 14 square km There was a shortage of 1231 fire stations in the state It has further said that even existing fire services were ill-equipped to deal with fire emergencies The CAG which visited fire stations in these eight cities has found that many of these were “deficient in basic infrastructure such as land permanent building drill towers water sources fire hydrants fire tenders specialised fire appliances etc” It has also pointed to a “significant shortage of key personnel in fire departments” In some cities the fire stations were being commanded by the firemen instead of station officers” it has said Despite the wide gaps in infrastructure the CAG found that only Rs 155 crore of the Rs 703 crore barely 22 percent set aside for capital works in these cities during 2010-15 was utilised Mumbai had the highest proportion of unspent balance totalling Rs 430 crore In the exit conference the Mumbai municipality informed the CAG that “a substantial portion of the budget remains unutilised since the fire brigade had to import firefighting and rescue vehicles/ equipment from foreign nations since the appropriate Bharat Stage IV emission norm complaint chassis was not available with Indian manufacturers” Even more serious is the CAG’s para on Mumbai where it has pulled up the fire department “for not conducting periodical inspections of high rises and dilapidated buildings leading to major fire accidents during 2010-15 and loss of lives and property “Mumbai is the country’s high rise capital It has further said that except Mumbai and Thane the six other cities weren’t even conducting periodic audits Many buildings and hazardous premises such as petrol pumps LPG stations firecracker shops saw mills etc in these cities were operating without the mandatory fire NOC” It has further found that “there were deficiencies in filing first information reports (FIRs) in fire incidents” While in Mumbai alone 24332 major and minor fire tragedies involving 1144 casualties were reported the report further states there was no uniform format and documentation for filing the FIR Commenting further on how under-equipped the fire stations were In some fire stations in Thane Nashik and Pune that the auditors visited there wasn’t sufficient space to move vehicles In some fire stations fire tenders were parked in roadside tin sheds exposing them to vagaries of weather and risk of accident and damage Fire hydrants were unavailable in some stations whereas a majority of the external fire stations were found to be non-functional In Mumbai the CAG has said “Only 12 per cent— 1260 out of 10637 external fire hydrants — were dysfunctional” The CAG has said that the non-functional hydrants severely impaired the fire brigade’s fire fighting capabilities while dealing with three major fire incidents that broke out in Bandra’s Garib Nagar slum (2011) Mantralaya fire (2012) and Lotus Neelkamal Business Park (2014) Watch Video: What’s making news “The gaps in infrastructal facilities were a matter of grave concern as it would continue to affect the fire-fighting capabilities in these cities and put more lives and properties at risk The state should review the current infrastructure and reduce these gaps” Mantralaya’s new building a tinderbox The fire at Mantralaya in 2012 was one of the worst in the history of the state But it appears no lessons have been learnt even after this tragedy The latest CAG audit states that over three years after the fire department directed the state to rectify fire safety violations found during an inspection of the Mantralaya’s New Administrative Building in August 2012 these had not been addressed After the fire at the main building the fire department had audited the Administrative Building It was found that LPG cylinders were being used to cook eatables without permission on two floors It had also found the lift lobbies and common passages encroached on several floors For all the latest India News

Global warming caused by afforestation in the Southern Hemisphere

first_imgUsing an earth system model of intermediate complexity (EMIC), the McGill Paleoclimate Model-2 (MPM-2), this paper examines the climatic biogeophysical effects of afforestation in the southern hemisphere (SH) with a focus on land–atmosphere interactions and the modeling influence of the dynamic ocean in the background of the earth system. Increased forest cover affects the albedo feedback and the supply of water, which in turn influences temperature. These changes largely control the net impact of the SH afforestation based on latitudinal band. In response to afforestation in 0–15°S and 0–40°S, the local surface air temperature significantly increases at a maximum value around 5°S during autumn. This warming is attributed to decreased land surface albedo dominating over enhanced precipitation which is resulted from increased tree cover. Forest expansions in 15–30°S and 30–40°S induce diminished land surface albedo and precipitation locally, leading to a warming around 25°S during spring and a warming around 35°S in winter, respectively. The maximum differences in the modeled responses of afforestation on latitude band basis are seen to be 7–10 times larger for the same season. Our results show that capturing how and where biogeophysical changes due to forest expansion warm a specific region requires an accurate global simulation of afforestation geographically. This provides potential for further improving detection and attribution of regional afforestation effects. Furthermore, a dynamic ocean simulation results in a warming compared with a fixed one over most forcing originating areas in response to afforestation. We demonstrate that unless the dynamic ocean is considered we risk influenced conclusions regarding the drivers of temperature changes over regions of afforestation.last_img

A $2.5 Million Question: Fix the 48-Year-Old Ocean City Primary School?

first_imgSchool officials made a presentation to a sparse crowd Wednesday evening as a March 11 school bond referendum approaches.The election will ask Ocean City voters to approve borrowing $2,497,421 to help pay for a renovation of the Ocean City Primary School, which was built in 1965.The event was scheduled to provide information on the project and to allow the public to ask questions.The district has the opportunity to recover 40 percent of the cost through a state grant and to capitalize on low interest rates before they climb, according to School Business Administrator Pat Yacovelli. Ocean City will receive $2,399,279 from a state Regular Operating District (ROD) grant for school construction. New Jersey had not offered ROD grants for the previous four years.The total projected cost for the project is $6,653,368. With the state paying $2.4 million and the district contributing about $1.8 million from a capital reserve fund, voters will be asked to fund the remaining $2.5 million through a bond issue.The election will be 3 to 9 p.m. Tuesday, March 11. The project is planned for summer 2015.The school needs a new roof, heating and cooling systems, plumbing and electrical systems, windows and doors. Most classrooms have no air-conditioning, and some of the windows are 48-year-old originals, single-glazed and lined with asbestos.A new HVAC would be more energy-efficient and allow the school to control different zones within the school, according to Facilities Manager A.J. Nordt.“Our goal is to make the school safer and healthier,” Board of Education member Ray Clark said. “Promote a better learning environment.”If the referendum is successful, the owner of a $500,000 home in Ocean City would pay an extra $15.39 in school taxes annually for a bond issue period of 10 years, according to Yacovelli.A separate HVAC project at Ocean City High School is projected to cost $2.9 million and to be completed this summer.last_img

No income, 2,000 mouths to feed: Lockdown squeezes Greek zoo

first_imgATHENS, Greece (AP) — After almost three months of closure due to COVID-19, Greece’s only zoo could be on the road to extinction: With no paying visitors or — unlike other European zoos — enough government aid to cover its very particular needs, it faces huge bills to keep 2,000 animals fed and healthy. So far, suppliers have shown understanding and are accepting credit. The founder of the Attica Zoological Park near Athens says that as things are the business can keep going for at least a month. “After that, we don’t know,” he said.last_img
