Under the plan, the City People's Committee assigned the City Police to assume the prime responsibility for, and coordinate with relevant units, to strengthen the review, survey, and development of fire-fighting and rescue plans to handle emergency situations. In cases where there is a risk of fire, explosion, incidents and accidents on a large scale and complicated developments, it is necessary to mobilize multiple forces and means of military units, agencies and organizations. At the same time, on the basis of the actual situation, related agencies are expected to proactively advise the City People's Committee to organize drills according to the approved plans.
Departments, branches of the city and military units shall organize the review of forces, vehicles and assets under their management according to the Plan No. 173/KH - People's Committee dated July 22, 2021 of the Hanoi People's Committee on the mobilization of forces and means against fire-fighting and rescue in cases of fires, explosions, incidents, accidents of large scale and complicated happenings in the city.
People's Committees of districts, towns shall direct the development of fire-fighting and rescue plans, mobilize multiple forces and specialized means of agencies and organizations in the locality to participate in the handling of the large-scale fire in establishments with high risk of fire and explosion.
From the beginning of 2022 up to now, there have been 386 fires in Hanoi. One of the causes leading to large fire with serious damage is due to ineffective calculation of mobilization of forces and means of agencies and organizations in the city to participate in coordination with the police force in fire-fighting and rescue plans.
