Like every year, STP Shipyard Palma this week organised an emergency fire drill for employees and staff in order to remember and implement the protocol to follow in case of fire in the dry dock.
For this reason, on Thursday they spent the day  attending  courses to refresh and deepen protocols in case of fire.
For this, the team of workers took theoretical and practical courses in handling equipment such as trucks and pumps, and as a final test participated in a fire drill.
From 8.00am in the morning the shipyard’s workers received theoretical instructions on skills and handling technical equipment used in case of fire.
And at 12.30, the simulation started when an external worker who was on the premises of STP warned that there was a fire on one of the  ships in the yard.
 From that moment reception  alerted  Palma fire brigade and the Security Department of STP.
The shipyard has its own fire truck and its team   quickly put into practice all the techniques previously reviewed.
It was a complete exercise not only because they proceeded to extinguish the fire on a boat but also because the evacuation of the surrounding boats and rescue and evacuation of a wounded victim who was inside the boat allegedly burned, including first aid demonstration.
More than 60 people were involved in the drill, including 40 employees and STP’s security personnel, two fire trucks from  Palma fire brigad and Port Police personnel.
