Fire Drill in a rainy season!?!

Earlier in the morning during at the office, Our building conducted a fire drill so that we can be prepared in case fire broke out. This is to make us aware of some precautions and basic knowledge that we might need in times of trouble (and I manage to take some pictures.hehe) 

Fire Volunteer putting off the fire
Here are some of the pictures I took during the fire drill and the discussion. Putting of even a simple or small fire can be a hard work since you need to know how to use the fire extinguisher. On that drill they've discuss some basic steps in using the fire extinguisher and how they varies on different usage.

Fire sample
Here the marshals/volunteers made a sample fire for us to extinguish just to show us how it is done. Proper handling of fire extinguisher is discuss so that full usage can be utilize.

Pressurize water to put off a fire
Handling the fireman's water hose has a proper way too because it is pressurize, The hose is kind of hard to hold on so proper handling is important.

more extingushing
More extinguishing and demonstration on how the fire should be properly put off, but in the end I didn't have much luck to try it myself since the fire extinguisher is limited to several person's only.
And considering the fact that it is rainy day season, I think we won't be needing this stuff some time soon. (hehe)
