Twenty-three officers and staff of Bank Islam Brunei Darussalam (BIBD) recently took part in a three-day fire marshal course conducted by the Public Relations Division, Operation ‘A’ Branch of the Fire and Rescue Department.

Participants were briefed on the proper use of firefighting equipment, procedures on evacuating a building and prevention of fire.

The participants also toured the Women’s Operations Unit of the Bandar Seri Begawan Fire Station and learnt about the roles and functions of the women firefighters unit.

The FRD offers safety programmes, including Life Saver 995 and fire marshal courses, to instil knowledge on workplace safety and guidelines on the proper use of a fire extinguisher.
