While seeking for cooperation and understanding of Lagosians (especially motorists) during the roadshow, the General Manager said that the campaign will cut across the three senatorial districts with the distribution of souvenirs, handbills and other materials amongst other things.

He informed that the campaign train intends to sensitize the entire public on safety and emergency issues, such as the use of the emergency toll-free numbers and necessary steps required to avoid emergencies which often leads to unnecessary loss of valuable lives and property.

He re-affirmed LASEMA’s readiness and commitment to the management of emergency/disaster in the State through prompt intervention and extension of its tentacles to all the nooks and crannies of the State.
