Fire extinguishers can be invaluable tools to help fight smaller fires in the workplace or to protect evacuation routes in the event of a larger one. In many cases they are a first line of defense and often contain or extinguish a fire, preventing costly damage. So it is very important for every staff to be trained on how to use fire extinguisher properly. Further, every workplace should be equipped with the fire extinguisher.
In line with this, the Emergency Medical Services Division under the Department of Medical Services conducted the training on the use of Fire Extinguishers to the staff working under the roof of MoH Building. Hon’ble Director General, Department of Medical Services, Chiefs and staffs working under Department of Medical Services, Department of Public Health and Directorate of Services attended the training.
This emergency preparedness activity is expected to play a vital role in keeping the staff and visitors in the Ministry safe.
