Enemalta Simluation – April 2012

April 26, 2012 in Fire

The Emergency Fire & Rescue Unit (E.F.R.U.) participated in a full scale fire fighting simulation held by the Civil Protection Department (CPD) on Wednesday 25th April 2012 at the Enemalta, gas division, San Lucjan oil company. The Unit’s main role in the exercise was to prevent further disasters, through the heat generated by the simulated fire, by cooling methods using ground monitors and water curtains. Laying hundreds of meters in hoses, connected to the water hydrants available on site and to the fire trucks outside the disaster area, allowed us to successfully complete the CPD’s directions in the minimum possible time. The simulation was rounded up at 1530 hrs after all the equipment was cleared up, cleaned and stacked.
