In his remarks, the Deputy Commandant Air vice Marshal OS Ntukogu commended the Controller General and his team for taking this step towards the amelioration of the Nigerian Fire Service Commission.

However, he assured them that the NDA will assist to improve their service to the Nation. He further encouraged them to widen their search for developmental collaboration, looking not only to the military for assistance, as there are lots of organizations who's effort and collaboration are required in building a better disaster management force in Nigeria.
