No more high-rise buildings in Pune, till we are fire-ready, pleads fire brigade

One of the basic requirements for any fire brigade to fight fire incidents in high-rise buildings, above 100 metres vertical length, is the number of snorkels it has. A snorkel is a platform or bucket attached onto a mechanically bending arm installed onto a fire truck. This helps the fire brigade officials reach the top where the fire has occurred. However, currently, the city fire department has only two snorkels with them, having capacity to deal with fire incidents up to a vertical limit of 100 metres.
