Tana River County government has launched strategies to contain fire emergencies after last night fire incident that gutted down Hola secondary school dormitory.

In a statement to newsrooms on Monday, through the Director Governor’s Press Service Steve Juma, Tana River County Governor Major retired Dhadho Godhana said that the immediate initiative will enable the County to contain any fire related incidences so as to save lives and properties.

Godhana said already three fire stations have been established in Tana North, Tana River and Tana delta so as to easy fire and any other disaster management  in the County.

He said that the Hola secondary school fire incident was a wakeup call for the County government to quickly act before it is too late.

Major retired Godhana revealed that the County government has more extensive plans to ensure safety in all schools in Tana River County.

“Our team of experts is already on the ground to assess the damage and compile a report which we will fully implement, however, we have taken all urgent measures to ensure learning is not disrupted in the school,” he added.

Property including beddings, boxes among other students’ belongings was destroyed during the Hola secondary school fire incident.

However, Ghodhana has linked the fire incident to electricity fault and not the ongoing burning of secondary schools experienced countrywide.

He assured the student, teachers and parents that the County government will fully support repair works in the damaged dormitory.
