" It gives me immense pleasure to learn that JIFSA has designed a number of innovative programmes for training of various types of personnel in the area of Fire and Safety Engineering. According to the latest act of Govt. of India it is essential to keep Fire and Safety trained personnel in almost all industries, high rise buildings, malls and shopping complex. There is great dearth of right personnel in the area of Fire, Safety and First Aid. An engineering graduate having trained in Fire and Safety will have edge in initial employment and promotion. I feel almost all engineering graduates should have training in fire and safety. JIFSA has designed a number of interesting courses. After completion of such courses vast opportunities will be available for them. Courses run by JIFSA will go a long way in filling the gap of trained personnel in fire and safety in India."

" It may be mentioned that training modules are available for college and school students for various durations. JIFSA is also engaged in training of corporate personnel in Fire and Safety domain. There is an interesting group in JIFSA who handles fire system design and installation for various types of structures including high rise buildings."

" I wish the programmes a grand success."
