MIRI: Miri Hospital successfully conducted a fire drill with Lopeng Bomba (Fire and Rescue Department) at its blood bank, Pathology Department here on Tuesday (May 17).

At 8.57am, a Code Red notification was announced by the customer service officer after the fire alarm at the hospital went off at 8.50am.

The medical team under the Fire Action Plan treated the victims, who suffered from breathing difficulties due to inhaling thick smoke, after they were rescued at 9.21am.

“Such training is implemented every year according to the existing policy to increase the readiness of Miri Hospital staff and to streamline work with other departments when faced with the real situation.”
