Approximately more than 1 lakh skilled personnel are required each year in India and abroad, to ensure safety from fire. The job distribution in this field is as follows: 80% in safety jobs, 10-15% in fire engineering jobs, and the remaining 5% in the fire fighting jobs. The industries

like Oil & Gas Sector, Petrochemical Complexes, High Rise buildings, Shopping Malls, Electrical Installations, etc. need experienced and trained fire fighting & safety personnel of the highest order. Barendra Mohan Sen, Advisor PSP, Former Director, Fire & Emergency Services, Govt. of West Bengal said that it is an immense opportunity for the entire group to be the first in the industry to introduce such a lucrative and useful course. The jobs in this field of fire fighting are often very challenging, risk-taking as well as a noble profession too. Saving human life at the same time saving oneself, while combating the onslaught of fire, needs high-grade skills, special training, and physical fitness. They hope PSP will assure professional training for the same.
