Fire drill at Amiri Hospital

By Hanan Al-Saadoun

KUWAIT: Kuwait Fire Service Directorate carried out a mock exercise at the new building of Amiri Hospital in Sharq. The scenario was about a fire on the fifth and eleventh floors of the new building, so two teams – one for rescue and the other for firefighting – were formed. Thick smoke filled the place, so the building was evacuated and ventilated. A person on the 11th floor was rescued, while the hazardous materials team dealt with the fire on the 5th floor in a medicine storeroom where hazardous material had “leaked”. An “injured” person was handed to paramedics.

Live ammunition exercise
The relations and security information department at the interior ministry said the coastguard will carry out a live ammunition exercise in Kuwait’s territorial waters today and tomorrow (Dec 23-24, 2019) from 8 am until 3 pm. It warned sea-goers from approaching the site during the abovementioned timings. The shooting will take place around Qarouh and Um Al-Maradem islands.

Municipality tour
Kuwait Municipality’s public relations department said the emergency team in the Capital governorate carried out a field tour resulting in issuing five citations for displaying goods in front of the store. The team also dealt with seven complaints received through the hotline 1855555.
