In two days of 20-21 December 2018, Quang Trung Software City (QTSC) cooperated with the Police Department of Fire Fighting and Prevention of District 12 to organize a firefighting and rescue drill at QTSC Building 1, QTSC Building 9 and Helios Building in QTSC.
This is an annual activity of QTSC in order to advance local community’s sense of responsibility in fire prevention and firefighting. In addition, it is to improve professional skills of the specialized division to actively prevent fire and effectively fight fire, ensure a safe living, working and learning environment whenever having an incident fire or explosion.
As planned, at 10:30 AM, the first fire alarm of QTSC Building 1 rang. Very soon after, the security forces at the building immediately found the fire point and broadcast the loudspeaker to reassure employees. A minute later, when the fire was detected, the second fire alarm resounded and the security guard announced the evacuation. All working staff were forced to move to the hallway and evacuate by stairs to quickly escape from the building.
While waiting for the fire police to come, the building's security forces used fire extinguishing equipment such as CO2 fire extinguishers, powder fire extinguishers and fire hoses to stave off the fire. In addition, they also gave employees instruction to evacuate quickly, provided first aid, rescued and took injured person, equipment and assets away from the fire scene as quickly as possible.
About 07 minutes later, fire trucks of the Police Department of Fire Fighting and Prevention of District 12 arrived at the fire scene. While firefighters used fire hoses to get a fire under control, crane trucks approached windows of the building’s top floors to save staffs safely.
