Fire Safety Management Training

Fire Safety Management Training

Lilongwe City Council (LCC) engaged its members of staff in the first ever 3 day Fire Safety Management training which commenced on Tuesday 19 March, 2024 at the Civic offices.

Speaking during the training, Director of Engineering Services, Julius Tsogolani said efficient application of fire safety procedures is subject to staff knowing what to do in the event of an emergency. All staff are required to ensure they are fully aware of how they are to respond to an outbreak of fire; this applies to all staff without exception.

Seventy (70) staff members were trained about fire risk and safety assessment, development of fire safety policy and fire drills.

LCC hopes that this training will enable its staff to respond promptly to fire accidents and in a safer and more efficient manner to help save lives and properties even at their respective communities.

This is a great program that LCC urges more companies or individuals to get on board with.
