Ikorodu, Badagry To Get New Emergency Response Centres



The Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode has announced that plans are already at advanced stage to establish two new emergency response centres in Ikorodu and Badagry. The process according to Ambode is to ensure a twenty four hour operational interface with the major response unit hub at Oshodi.
Ambode made the disclosure during the commissioning of the newly established LASEMA Response Unit (LRU) in Lgoa.
Speaking through the Commissioner for Special Duties and Inter-Governmental Relations, Mr. Oluseye Oladejo, Ambode promised that his administration would continue to fast track the training of more voluntary community emergency responders across the State.
According to him, the “State government has ensured a paradigm shift in emergency management by scaling up monitoring and evacuation activities of disaster prone areas through the establishment of a coordinated network of CCTV surveillance and synergy with other emergency response agencies in the State.”
He appealed to residents and stakeholders to support the government by assisting the newly commissioned emergency response unit to achieve the desired impact through the provision of timely and relevant emergency information when needed.
“As individual, we must remain vigilant and be safety conscious at all times, safety is everybody’s business. We must therefore be our brother’s keeper,” he added.
