A completion ceremony for a pre-summer basic firefighting course for Maungtaw Township students was held in Maungtaw District Maungtaw Township Fire Services Department office yesterday morning.
At the ceremony, Maungtaw Township administrator U Myint Khaing delivered a course completion speech, and prizes were awarded to outstanding trainees of the pre-summer basic firefighting course for students.
Next, winners of best prizes in the subjects on firefighting and search & rescue were presented with awards, while course trainees were presented with course completion certificates by the head of the Maungtaw Township police force, the executive officer of township development committee and the township Fire Services Department head.
Maungtaw District Fire Services Department head U Thant Sin said, “Under the guidance of Rakhine State minister for security and border affairs, the course was conducted for students in Maungtaw to be ready to prevent the outbreak of fires in the summer. In Maungtaw region, natural disasters like storms are encountered yearly, and whether it is a natural disaster or an outbreak of fire, the course was conducted with an aim to have cooperation between township and district and to benefit the school and the local area.” The township fire services department usually conducts these courses, but no courses were held in 2016 and 2017. This year, a total of 40 trainees attended the two-week course that was held from 7 to 18 May. Similarly a pre-summer basic firefighting course for students in Maungtaw District Buthidaung Township was held from 7 to 18 May.
