The Rawalpindi Commissioner has directed all the owners of factories, government and private offices, mills, educational institutions, bus stands and shopping centers in the Rawalpindi division to install modern fire extinguishing instruments in their buildings within two weeks. After the tragic fire incidents of Karachi and Lahore, all the factories, government and private offices, mills, educational institutions, bus stands, academies, storage areas and shopping plazas of the Rawalpindi district, along with three other districts of the division, had been served notices to install fire extinguishing mechanism within their premises. The commissioner also asked the major industrial units and owners of other buildings to provide emergency exit facilities in their buildings to avoid any untoward incident. He warned the owners that failure to comply with the instructions would result in heavy fines and even closure of their buildings.
