To protect DLF5 and the adjoining areas in case of a fire emergency, DLF has set up a private Fire Station at DLF5. This is the second private fire station in India (first set up by DLF at Cyber City).
The DLF Fire Services house has 3 hydraulic platforms – two 90 meters and one 60 meters in height – sourced from Finland.
DLF has the distinction of being the only private developer in the country to have hydraulic platforms of 90m height, as the height of the equipment is very crucial for conducting rescue operations in a high-rise building, in the eventuality of a fire outbreak.
These hydraulic platforms are capable of carrying a load of 400 kg. This is the only instance in India where lifts of these heights are available for rescue and fire fighting operations.
DLF Fire Services houses two fire tenders at the station. Each of them has fire dousers with a capacity of carrying 18 kilolitres of water per vehicle. The station is manned by trained fire safety personnel with several years of fire fighting experience.
Practice fire drills are organized in all the communities on a fortnightly basis, to ensure efficiency in case of emergency. They are conducted with adequate guidance, in the presence of all the residents, security guards and other officials.
