Fire – everyone take hold of a fire extinguisher
Practice makes perfect. So that in case of fire no one runs through the corridors like a headless chicken, some members of the local fire brigade explained to us how to use a fire extinguisher. At 11a.m. this morning the training started for our workshop and media centre staff. Having heard the theory, the practice followed.
Fires are rare at such high altitudes, also due to the thin air. We have not heard of a fire in Curahuasi since 2003. But it is good to be prepared, since one does not know what tomorrow brings.
