Domestic fire problems in Third World countries

  • Saeed A. Ansari


Third World countries are full of problems, one of which is the outbreak of fires, coupled with the inability of fire services to control them effectively. Most of these countries are installing new industries to improve their agricultural and industrial capabilities. This has changed not only the type but also the magnitude of fire risk. Data regarding outbreaks of fires and the losses caused by them are not available, and in these countries it is not even easy to collect statistics. Immediate remedial steps are therefore necessary to save valuable human lives and property.
