Gurgaon: Real estate developer DLF on Saturday launched a fire station at one of its projects here, Cyber City, with three fire tenders, a DLF official said.

The fire-fighting equipment will be used for the projects being developed by DLF, S K Dheri, Head of Fire Safety at DLF said, adding that this will be the first private fire station in India.

The hydraulic platforms -- two of 90 m height and one 60 m -- are the latest and the most sophisticated equipment which has been imported from Finland, Dheri said.

He said, this is the first time in India that hydraulic platforms of this height would be available for rescue or fire fighting operations in the eventuality of any emergency.

This is an added advantage as compared to the hydraulic platforms of 70 m height existing with the state governments of West Bengal and Maharashtra, he said.

The hydraulic platforms at DLF fire stations are capable of carrying a load of 400 kg, he said.

Approximately, 25-40 personnel will be deployed at the fire station, he said. DLF is maintaining all systems and equipment at its own cost, he said.
