Fire brigade simulations
In Gran Canaria last week, the fire brigade based in San Bartolomé de Tirajana simulated an accident between a truck carrying a potentially dangerous cargo, in this case fuel, and a car. The 21-hour course on which this simulation was based was offered in Gran Canaria as a precautionary measure. Last year there were five incidents of this kind in the borough of San Bartolomé de Tirajana and as many as 15 in the capital Las Palmas. It is therefore important for the professionals to be experienced and competent at the scene of the accident. The better this is practiced, the safer the procedures run in an emergency.
