Reflected on this structure are the designated people responsible when emergency situation arises. These people have different tasks needed to fulfill when fire breaks out. After the organizational structure topic, Officer Baang took over the stage and shared some additional information.

When the officers finished their lecture, the fun and exciting part started; fire drill. The workers were much cooperative in the said drill, showing enthusiasm by volunteering in the demonstration. The officers demonstrated to the workers the right way of putting out a fire using wet cloth and fire extinguisher. The workers definitely learned a lot from the lecture and drill. They are sure fired up when faced in an emergency situation.
