Rapid response kills fire
An incident in one of the Durban factories of Berry Astrapak was contained and managed before it could cause any further major harm or damage.
The security guard who was patrolling the area premises came across a small fire which, left to continue, could have developed into a much larger challenge. His training and alertness aided by calm and professional action allowed him to respond in textbook fashion.
By activating the correctly positioned and well-maintained extinguisher he was able to contain and douse the fire and ensure that no further threat was caused.
Please can you convey our appreciation and thanks to the guards that were on duty on the evening of 8th August. Without their detection and alerting of our Fire Team of the issue, we could have had a major catastrophe. The fire had actually taken out the fire alarm, thereby creating an environment where the fire would have only been detected once it was too late.
We commend Mr. Khumalo of Protea Coin Security on his amazing swift bravery and cool-headed action. We feel safer with you as part of our Team.
