BMC Moerdijk practices in collaboration with the fire brigade

At BMC Moerdijk, we take safety seriously, and that includes conducting evacuation drills. By practicing regularly, awareness and knowledge of how to respond to emergencies are increased.

On April 11, 2023, an evacuation drill took place in collaboration with the fire brigade. The pre-defined scenario involved a leak during the unloading of a hazardous substance, requiring the entire site to be evacuated. The scenario included two victims (practice dummies) near the tank of the hazardous substance. The fire brigade provided first aid to the victims in this situation. They then simulated applying foam to the tank. Afterward, we conducted an evaluation of the drill with the fire brigade to continuously improve safety on our premises.
