The Mumbai Fire Brigade (MFB) has received four ISO Certifications for its performance and services and became the first authority in the country to achieve his feat.
The MFB has received four certificates from the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in four different parameters, including ISO 9001:2015 for Quality Management System (QMS), ISO 14001:2015 for Environment Management System (EMS), ISO 45001:2018 for Occupational Health and Safety Management System (OHSMS), and ISO 27001 for Information Security Management System (ISMS).
Hemant Parab, Chief Fire Officer (CFO) of MFB, said, “Now the brigade’s performance will be recorded as per the international standards. With the improvised system in the IT section, the firemen will get a more accurate idea about the intensity of the fire incidents, and how many vehicles or personnel need to be pressed into operation at the incident sites.”
He further said that the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) will audit the fire brigade’s performance every year, and they have to “work more efficiently” to maintain ISO standards compliance.
Also, Sanjay Manjrekar has been appointed as the new Deputy Chief Fire Officer of MFB in place of Hemant Parab. Hemant Parab joined the Mumbai fire brigade as an assistant fire officer in 1989. In 2021, he was promoted to the CFO rank and retired after serving MFB for 33 years.
