As part of an awareness campaign initiative for ‘Agni suraksha’, Kerala State Fire and Rescue Department and Kerala State Civil Defense Service started a cyclathon on 14th April 2021.

Two teams comprising of Fire and Rescue as well as Civil Defense Service members will commence their cycling journey from Chacka Fire station in Trivandrum and Meenchanda Fire station in Kozhikode respectively and will meet at Gandhinagar Fire station in Ernakulam.

In 1944 a tragic event was witnessed in mumbai aboard the ship SS Fort Stikine which caught fire and during the fire and rescue team’s effort to subdue the fire there was an explosion which cost many firefighters their lives.
