147 candidates sustained injuries during physical tests during Mumbai fire brigade recruitment

Published on

As many as 147 candidates sustained injuries during the physical tests conducted for the ongoing Mumbai Fire Brigade recruitment, the city civic body said.

While 142 of them sustained minor injuries, five aspirants sustained fractures and were hospitalised, a Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) release said on Tuesday. Most of the candidates sustained injuries while jumping from the 19-foot-high platform as part of the physical tests, the report said.

Candidates have to jump from the platform not to the ground, but to a bungee cord held by trained firefighters, it added.

Mumbai Fire Brigade has undertaken recruitment to fill 910 Firefighter vacancies. As of 13 January 2023, a total of 7,532 candidates have passed the physical tests at Dahisar ground in the western suburbs.

“Of these, 147 candidates suffered various injuries. All the injured were immediately taken by ambulances to city hospitals,” the report said.

Apart from the five candidates who were hospitalized for fractures, all others were given medical treatment and allowed to go home, the BMC said, adding that all safety precautions were followed during the recruitment process.
