According to the National Building Review Board, 120 private and public schools were inspected last year, but none had a fire hydrant on site for fire emergencies. About 10 percent had a hydrant in the vicinity, while 30 percent installed fire detection and alarm systems, although they did not have adequate coverage.

In conclusion, here at uncoveredug.com, we call upon the government of Uganda to come and support the injured students and the school at large.
