(PLO)- It is necessary to change and turn the word “running license” back to its true nature as “qualified certification” on fire protection and ensure it is checked and maintained during operation.
We silently watched every update on the number of people killed in the fire, praying for the number to stop, until the “peg” was 33 lives after the fire force approached every corner. at karaoke bar…
This morning, I sat typing the status line on Facebook, but kept writing and deleting, deleting and writing again. Because I don’t know if this is the right time to talk about the “license” of fire protection – when the grief has been and has just happened. Why not talk about it earlier, when we almost all know that the nature of the “license” is a procedure, not a responsibility for safety at all.

In my 20+ years of practicing law, I’ve done a lot of work related to “doing the paperwork,” in common parlance. And when I approached the work, I understood that the issuance of fire protection certificates was almost a “closed process” or rather “proprietary”. All of those processes are almost “connected” to each other.
And for that reason, customers come to us for support with documents to conduct business activities in specific industries that, in order to meet operational requirements, need a certificate of eligibility for fire protection, they always use the word “run license” instead of “apply for a certificate”.
And no one throughout the process related to the certification of fire protection, really cares about what conditions, what fire protection equipment is equipped, how to exit… based on/or meeting the requirements. come back safely. Their common goal, from the operator of the business, the person who “runs the paperwork” is only aiming for one goal, which is how to get the “license”; instead of learning, equipping, building and complying with strict requirements on fire prevention and fighting to ensure safety during operation and business activities related to fire and explosion issues.
Because of that, it is because of that mindset that the problem is related to human life, even many people like at the Carina apartment building in Ho Chi Minh City before or the recent An Phu – Binh Duong karaoke fire with number Massive casualties occurred as a direct consequence. In which, life is placed in a lucky – unlucky fashion. That is, good luck does not burn, bad luck burns. But the fire is almost just praying to heaven, and how much the fire protection system meets is rarely expected.
It’s a sad fact, like the stories of the past or just yesterday. But perhaps it is not advisable to hesitate, hesitate, say yes or no, when is the time to say it. But just have to dissect, speak up, clarify to the end of the story. From the mindset of those involved in a whole process of granting/applying a certificate of eligibility for fire prevention and fighting, to practitioners who “run the papers” such as our legal advice and support lawyers, and all of us too.
It is necessary to change and turn the word “running license” back to its true nature as “qualified certification” on fire protection and ensure it is checked and maintained during operation.
Because we can easily “run” many things in this life, but we cannot easily run things related to human/many human lives. We can hardly escape when there is a fire!
