PK4L UGM conducted an integrated firefighting training at the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering Faculty of Engineering UGM on Thursday (16/6). The training covers Safe and Healthy Environment theory, procedures on using the fire extinguisher and hydrant hose, firefighting with traditional tools, and manual firefighting for wildfire caused by leaked gas from a 3-kilogram LPG tank. The training that lasted for at least 2 hours and guided directly by the Commander of PK4L UGM mainly focused on procedures and activities related to firefighting inside the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering building.
Due to the limited number of fire engines in a regent or a city, in certain cases, assistance from the nearest fire department is particularly needed so that the fire extinguishing process could be done thoroughly. This joint training was conducted in order to anticipate the occurrence of wildfire in an area and to learn the coordination pattern that would later be applicable in firefighting situations around the area of the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering.
