Fire Safety Awareness Training held for KMBI HO Staff

“We hope that whatever you have learned from us today, you will not have to use.” Fire Officer 1 (FO1) Kent Michael B. Grayda said as his parting words. This was after their group composed of FO1 Elenette Asis, FO1 Meri Fe Perasol and FO1 Roldan Balut conducted the Fire Safety Awareness Training for KMBI Head Office Staff, last April 27, 2016. The training was done through the efforts of the Head Office Division of the General Services Department of KMBI and through the support of our security group SNS. It was held at the 4th floor of KMBI Head Office and attended by 60 KMBI personnel.

The instruction was held to equip the staff with the basics of fire safety: on what to do during the occurrence of fire and how to use a fire extinguisher. The training is just but one of the measures being undertaken by KMBI to protect its people from the occurrence of fires. Continuous improvements are being done on the Head Office to make sure that it is prepared for such occurrence and to comply with the existing fire prevention code.
