    Federal fire services, qualified Nigerian seamen should be incorperated in the search and Rescue as organised by Nigerian Maritime Addministration and safety Agency.
    Fire service men are trained to fight fire, while Seamen also have similar training and how best to rescue ship in distress. This can also be applicable in aviation industry.

  3. Pls fellow Naija,
    I am carring a research on fire fighting and prevention and need material, especially on the history of nigerian fire services, other material that relate the said objective.
    as you know that fire prevention is a collective resposibility.
    pls if you have any, kindly send it to my box or if you have a good sight for this.
    As you are assisting , May God Bless you.
    Thanks, ROC
