The civic body has decided to deploy Quick Response Vehicles (QRVs) in all wards to instantly snuff out blazes. The kind of vehicles pressed into service would range from pickup trucks to Tempo Travellers, Jeeps or bikes that could haul water tanks of different capacities and jet pressure to traverse through narrow lanes and heavy traffic. Besides floating a tender to procure the vehicles, the Karnataka State Fire and Emergency Services Department has written to the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike asking for land to set up the fire stations.

Palike in trouble over finding land for soild waste management 22.11.2017 deccanherald.com
The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike is in trouble over finding land amid peoples opposition in setting up solid waste management (SWM) plants in all 198 wards. After the High Court of Karnataka recently directed the BBMP to plan ways to deal with waste management from the wards itself, the civic authority is preparing a micro plan for each ward. The city generates 3,500 tonnes of garbage per day which is being processed and disposed of in Doddaballapur, Kudlu, Lakshmipura, Bingipura, Mavallipura, Kannahalli, Seegehalli, Chikkanagamangala, Dodda Bidrukalu, Subbarayan Palya and Lengaderanahalli area. The villagers here are protesting against the dumping of garbage in these areas as the foul smell emanating from the dumped trash has filled the villages. S Ramakanth, Solid Waste Management Round Table and SWM Expert Committee member, said: "According to the court, the ward committees in all the 198 wards will have to meet by November 30 and should present a solid waste management plan and finalise ...
