Lucknow Metro Rail Corporation (LMRC) has yet again achieved another accomplishment by obtaining Fire No Objection Certificate (NOC) for all the 13 Metro stations of the balance section of North-South corridor (phase 1-A). Lucknow Metro has got fire safety clearances from the Uttar Pradesh Fire Services before the commencement of commercial run from CCS Airport to Munshipulia.
Fire NOC is a mandatory procedure pertaining to fire safety norms and other fire regulatory checks. In the elevated section various equipments are scrutinized like fire fighting system, fire pumps, fire hydrants and hose reels to check and reassure the level of preparedness of the fire fighting apparatus as a whole. In addition to the other equipments, the fire alarms and smoke detectors along with portable extinguishers are also inspected before issuing the clearance.
In addition to the above arrangements, the underground system consists of smoke extraction system which caters to the ventilation in the tunnels and at stations. The Track sprinklers installed along side track in the underground section and tunnels are also tested before the issuance of fire NOC.
Lucknow Metro Rail Corporation is all set for the CMRS inspection slated to be held from 20th-22nd February, 2019 which will pave way for the commencement of commercial run of the entire North-South corridor from CCS Airport to Munshipulia.
