FEMA Installs Barricades on Dogon Gada Bridge to Prevent Collapse

By Grace Samuel

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in the Federal Capital Territory has taken decisive action by blocking off the Dogon Gada box culvert to avert a potential collapse that could endanger lives.

Mrs. Florence Wenegieme, Director of Forecasting, Response, and Mitigation at FEMA, led the operation, emphasizing the critical urgency of addressing this imminent disaster.

The authorities have closed the Dogon Gada box culvert as a precautionary measure to prevent any risk to public safety. Mrs. Florence Wenegieme highlighted the importance of promptly addressing this looming crisis.

According to Mrs. Wenegieme, the barricade is a temporary solution until the culvert can be rebuilt. She stressed the need to prioritize safety, even if it means taking longer alternative routes.

Mr. Irimiya Kanpani, Head of Lokogoma Village, explained that the community had funded the construction of the culvert in 2016 and had been maintaining it until its recent collapse.

He urged the community to unite once again to rebuild the culvert for everyone’s safety and convenience.

The barricade serves as an interim measure to safeguard lives while preparations are made for the reconstruction of the culvert. Mrs. Wenegieme and Mr. Kanpani underscored the collective responsibility of the community and authorities to ensure the safety and well-being of all residents.

This proactive response by FEMA and the local community reflects a commitment to addressing infrastructure challenges promptly and ensuring public safety across the Federal Capital Territory.
