Baiduri Finance Conducts Fire Drill at Blue Card and Insurance Centre
12th December 2017

Bandar Seri Begawan, 12 December 2017 – At 9:30 am, Baiduri Finance conducted a simulated fire drill at their Blue Card and Insurance (BCI) Centre. The fire alarm was triggered due to thick plumes of smoke emerging from one of the back rooms at the BCI.

Certified Baiduri fire marshals, dressed in their high-visibility vests and helmets, were seen directing and evacuating the staff as well as Baiduri customers from the building to the assembly point nearby where a headcount was conducted and relayed to the Fire and Rescue officials.

During the simulation, the role of the casualties was played by four Baiduri Finance staff members each depicting a unique injury or scenario (head trauma, broken limb, shock and unconsciousness). This was done to simulate a real-life scenario and to test the fire marshals’ ability to adequately assess the situation. The casualties were taken to a makeshift tent where medical staff were on hand to treat their injuries.

The exercise was a joint effort between the Baiduri Bank Group, the Fire and Rescue Department, the Royal Brunei Police, the Emergency Medical Ambulance Service (EMAS) of RIPAS Hospital and the Department of Electrical Services.

At the completion of the fire drill, Pg Hj Shadan Pg Hj Yakob, Baiduri Bank Group’s Chief Fire Marshal and Coordinator of the exercise concluded the training by initiating stand down procedures.

The activity is in line with Baiduri Bank Group’s strategic plans to raise the level of awareness on fire safety and security procedures amongst its employees. The purpose of the drill was to provide tactical experience, sufficient knowledge and training for employees as well as empower them to handle situations that might arise during emergencies.
