CISF’s airport team avoid corona with unique measures

Nagpur: The 350-odd personnel of Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) deployed at Nagpur airport have managed to remain unscathed amid the Covid outbreak even as some personnel of other agencies working here, like the police department, could not keep themselves from getting infected.
It’s learnt, successful adoption and execution of measures like ‘one-minute-drill’ and ‘touch-free’ techniques helped CISF to remain Covid-free though some of those who arrived by flights in city later tested positive. An officer of the city police, along with another colleague, who were entrusted with duty of checking flight passenger, too had tested positive.
According to a source in CISF, the agency ensured its personnel perfected the ‘one-minute-drill’ in which they would wear PPE kits and follow other precautionary measures within the shortest possible time whenever any suspected or high risk person, with or without symptoms, was required to be monitored and personally attended.
“We modified structures of gadgets like hand-held metal detectors which can help us in frisking passengers from a distance. The entire checking process has been made touch-free without compromising with the security,” said the source.
