Public fire brigade drill at SCK•CEN


On Monday 13 October and Wednesday 22 October 2014, from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m., SCK•CEN will organise a practical drill for the public fire brigade (zone Kempen) on the technical domain.

This zone includes the corps of Balen, Mol, Geel, Westerlo, Herentals, Grobbendonk and Herenthout, which can be deployed in case of possible incidents at SCK•CEN.

In all, more than 50 firefighters with equipment and trucks will participate under the direction of SCK•CEN's internal company fire brigade.

This practical drill fits in with the continuing education of the public fire brigade services and is the continuation of a theoretical training on the use of gas suits given to the corps in question by SCK•CEN at the end of 2013.
