    25 learn importance of ‘fire safety’ first

    Izah Azahari

    A total of 19 staff members from Employees’ Trust Fund (TAP) and six from Mohd Yusof Complex took part in a three-day Fire Marshal course from June 22-24 at the Bandar Seri Begawan Fire Station organised by the Fire and Rescue Department’s Operation ‘A’ Branch Public Relation Division.

    The participants were exposed to the importance of fire safety through theory and practical such as fire causes, preparedness when facing a fire incident in the workplace, the correct way to use a fire extinguisher and fire blanket, and procedures to prevent being trapped in a building in the event of a fire.

    Participants also visited the Women’s Operation Unit to learn the function of women firefighters and an array of fire equipment.

    The FRD provides safety programmes such as Fire Prevention Briefing, LS995 and Fire Marshal Course to know the safety aspects when dealing with emergencies as well as know the correct procedures for the use of fire extinguishers.
