Latest News

fire 1Fire safety is a very important issue at MYTCL. Therefor, every employee is trained on how to understand the use of a fire extinguisher, as well as which one is best to use in different circumstances. All departments within MYTCL perform emergency exercises, even the PR&CSD Department.

In this month the PR&CSD office must participate in such event. Before the start of  the practical exercise, Safety and Environmental Department Officer, U Ye Min Thant, provided training on how to use a fire extinguisher, and that it could save your life in an emergency. He also explained the key to putting out a fire with an extinguisher is to use the PASS strategy: pull the pin, aim the hose, squeeze the lever, and sweep the hose. Following this the PR&CSD team take part very actively in this activity and Firefighting course. If you have never used a fire extinguisher, we recommend that you do. If you have one in your home, our Safety department also recommends that you monthly inspect it to ensure it is properly charged. Another critical factor is to make certain that you have the proper extinguisher for your area.

Be safe!
