Spanco lighted up houses of 500 families of Chikhli slum near Kalamna in a single day. 480 meters were installed in a single day, a record in itself. Previously the slum had no legal connection and slum dwellers used hooks for getting electricity at their homes. Spanco solved the problem by erecting more new poles and additional transformer to cater to the demands of the slum.
Firemen to get Royal Enfield bikes to fight fire at congested places
Nagpur Municipal Corporation has procured four Royal Enfield bikes equipped with Compressed air foam units to fight fire in congested places where mobility is restricted by heavy traffic. It will help in fighting small fire like transformer or vehicle fire.
The bike will carry two firemen dressed in official clothes. The vehicle will have a siren which will sound like fire tenders siren. This will increase their probability of extinguishing fire at places where the big fire tender takes time to reach while passing through city roads.
