The Fire Service and Civil Defense is ready for fire and accident related security for the people returning home on the holy Eid-ul-Azha.

Security has been strengthened by setting up temporary control rooms at 8 points in and around Dhaka. Mobile patrol units are stationed at various locations. This activity has started from June 10. The work of these temporary control rooms will continue till 23 June 2024. These temporary control rooms will be open daily from 8 am to 11 pm.

The fire service has taken this measure to ensure quick or immediate response to any untoward situation or disaster-accident on the way home on Eid and on the way back from home after celebrating Eid. The places where temporary control rooms have been opened are: Sadarghat Launch Terminal, Buriganga River Nauthol, Munshiganj Launch Terminal, Mawa Ferry Ghat, Paturia Ferry Ghat, Aricha Launch/Ferry Ghat, Hajiganj-Nabiganj Ghat in Narayanganj, Narayanganj Launch Terminal and Bandar Ghat. At these places, equipment such as rescue boats, diving units, buoys, fire pumps, safety vests, throwing bags, life jackets, mega phones, folding stretchers, first aid boxes, rain coats, rescue equipment etc. are kept in these places. However, the number of manpower and equipment is more or less as required in different places.
