  • Description

    A GROUP OF EXPERTS ARE TOURING FRENCH-SPEAKING AFRICAN COUNTRIES TO INSTRUCT AIRPORT WORKERS IN ADVANCED TECHNIQUES OF FIGHTING FUEL FIRES.

    THE AIM OF THE TOUR IS TO INFORM AIRPOST WORKERS ABOUT THE LATEST EXTINGUISHERS AND THEIR APPLICATION.

    THE DEMONSTRATION TEAM WILL TOUR TUNISIA, MOROCCO, GUINEA, IVORY COAST, CONGO KINSHASA, CONGO BRAZZAVILLE AND CHAD, STAYING AN AVERAGE OF TWO DAYS IN EACH COUNTRY.

    THE FIRST DEMONSTRATION WAS GIVEN TO AIRPORT REFUELLING CREWS AT YOFF AIRPORT IN DAKAR.

    EMPHASIS WAS GIVEN TO HAND EXTINGUISHERS, BECAUSE IF PROPERLY USED THEY CAN PREVENT A FIRE IN PETROL AND OTHER FUELS FROM REACHING SERIOUS PROPORTIONS.

    AMONG THE NEW EXTINGUISHERS DISPLAYED WERE MODELS USING CARBON DIOXIDE GAS, A NON-INFLAMMABLE POWER AND ROAM AS EXTINGUISHING AGENTS.

    THE AIRPORT WORKERS WERE REMINDED THAT WHEN REFUELLING THEY WERE MOST LIKELY TO ENCOUNTER THE DANGER OF SERIOUS FIRE.
