Brunei Gas Carriers Sdn Bhd held a fire drill exercise with the support from the Public Relations Division of the Operation ‘F’ Branch under the Fire and Rescue Department recently.

Some 63 individuals participated. Fire marshals were tasked to evacuate employees from the building to a designated assembly point.

The drill’s objective was to enhance workers’ awareness on the dangers of a fire, as well as on safety during unpredictable weather; developing a sense of responsibility and concern about fire safety aspects in buildings; and ensure an effective procedure in systematic evacuation in case of a fire.

The Fire and Rescue Department reminded the public that fire can occur at any time and it is important to remain alert and call 995 for emergencies.
