Dubai, January 12, 2010
Dubai Airport Freezone conducted an intensive five-day awareness training on fire fighting, emergency response and safety training for its employees.
A total of 60 staff members across all departments participated in the program.
The training was conducted by the Dubai Civil Defense and the employees were divided into two groups. The instruction lasted three hours each day.
“It is good practice to always be prepared for any eventuality and regular fire fighting and emergency response training for our staff is a must,” said Yousuf Behzad, executive director of the Freezone’s Human Capital and Strategy Department.
Dubai Civil Defence trainers taught Freezone employees theoretical and practical skills in fire prevention skills, manual extinguishing devices, actual fire fighting onsite, spotting of general hazards, first aid and building evacuation.
