Background

Post Independence period was the time when India was relying on other nations for some of the basic services. Fire safety and other Disaster Management techniques being one of them.

We realized that there was no recognized institute for imparting training in the field of Fire Engineeringand Fire Protection.

The government of India had then set up a National Fire Service College in the year 1956 under the Ministry of Home Affairs by introducing various Training courses for serving fire service professionals and also fresh candidates for Sub. Officer Course for induction in Fire services. But this did not prove sufficient enough as due to fast industrialization and rapid increase in Fire hazards the NFSC could not cope with the high rising demand for imparting professional training to the individuals at various levels.
