A firefighting demonstration to familiarize staff of Fly Southern Aviation (Pvt.) Ltd. in operating Fire extinguishers was held on 4th October 2016 at Fly Southern premises Ratmalana. Rescue and Fire Fighting (RAFFS) personnel of the Colombo Airport Ratmalana, facilitated the event by delivering a lecture on identification of types of fires and discussed the procedures to follow when extinguishing common fires erupting from material, oil, gas or electric, especially aiming at fire hazards inside an aircraft hangar. They gave a hands-on demonstration on the use of fire extinguishers including Carbon Dioxide, Foam and Dry Chemical Powder.
Mr. Samith Abeygunawardena, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Fly Southern said that there is no sense in having Fire Fighting apparatus at the premises, if people do not know how to operate them in the event of an emergency. He insisted that all staff members at Fly Southern, especially those who are involved in flight and ground operations should be well conversant with the techniques of fire-fighting and should always be ready to fight fires should a need arises.
