The Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba-Akoko (AAUA) has taken delivery of a 300-Litre fire truck for its Fire and Safety Unit.
The procurement was followed by training for members of the unit to institutionalize a safety culture in the university.
Inaugurating the truck on behalf of the Vice Chancellor, Prof. Femi Mimiko, Wednesday last week, the Deputy Vice Chancellor, Prof Rotimi Ajayi, enjoined the trainees to apply their minds to the training for effective service delivery. He warned against misuse and urged the members of the university community to observe safety tips.
“I would like to stress the need for proper maintenance of the truck in line with the transportation policy of the university. For the avoidance of doubt, under no circumstances must the truck be used outside the university,” he said.
He urged members of the university community to cooperate with the Fire and Safety Unit by observing basic fire and safety tips as may be reeled out by the Fire Unit from time to time.
The DVC praised the unit for swiftly putting out the fire that started at the university’s MBA building recently.
The Fire Superintendent, Mr. Ibrahim Awodeyi, promised that the truck would be put to judicious use. (The Nation)
