( 10.015)-The Liberia National Fire Service (LNFS) has urged Liberians and other residents to acquire basic knowledge in extinguishing fire.

A Captain of the LNFS, George Kerkulah, said: “Since fire has no border, it is important for Liberians and other residents of the country to gain such knowledge, because it would enable them safely extinguish fire outbreak in their homes or work places.”

For his part, another Captain of the Agency, James Wogbeh, said: “The fire extinguishing education is intended to prepare people to knowing how to use extinguishers to curb any fire outbreak.”

The two fire service personnel made the statements Wednesday, June 10, 2015 at the Liberia Broadcasting System (LBS) in Paynesville when they commence a two-day lecture series on the use of fire extinguishers.

They recommended to the LBS Management the use of the 4-kg Fire Extinguisher, because it is suited to the state broadcaster’s need.

The exercise is an LBS Management’s initiative, intended to educate the system’s staff on the danger of fire and on the use of fire extinguishers in the event of an outbreak.    

Captains Kerkulah and Wogbeh are assigned with the Paynesville branch of the Liberia National Fire Service.
