Municipalities in the Eastern Libyan Region receive ROSENBAUER Fire Fighting Vehicles under the NOC Sustainable Development Program

The National Oil Corporation contributes to raising the capabilities of firefighters in a number of Libyan municipalities.

Under the umbrella of sustainable development programs at the National Oil Corporation, the activities of the training course in the field of firefighting were launched on Sunday, May 22, 2022, in cooperation with Rosenbauer and Mercanta.

The training course targeted 6 municipalities (Benghazi, Ajdabiya, Awjila, Kufra, Tazerboa and Ubari) who had previously received a number of fire engines as part of sustainable development projects.

This course aims to contribute to the professional development and skills development of the participants in the firefighting operations in the strategic control of accidents and firefighting in case of emergency to raise the efficiency and capabilities of the human element.

More than 80 firefighters and vehicle drivers participate in this course that lasts for 4 weeks, under the supervision of an expert trainer.

The opening ceremony of the training course was attended by Brigadier Abdulaziz Al-Arfi, director of the branch of the National Safety Authority, Eastern region, and he thankfully presented a shield of honour to the chairman of the board of directors of the NOC, Mr. Mustafa Sanalla. Special thanks were extended to Mr. Mohammed Al-Jahani and Mr. Haitham Al-Manquoush.

The Arabian Gulf Oil Company AGOCO was also involved in this project and were represented by Mr. Basheer Rashwan (Training Program Manager) and Mr. Hassan Elagouri (Safety Manager).

Mr. Bojan Mirkov, Service Engineer of ROSENBAUER-MERCANTA performed the training course.

The focus of the extensive training program was to fully exploit the capabilities of the modern ROSENBAUER Tank Fire Trucks TLF 5000 which are mounted on a MAN all-wheel drive chassis with a crew cabin for 6 firemen. The vehicle carries 4.500 l water plus 500 l of foam concentrate and is equipped with a combined normal/high-pressure pump NH35. The roof turret is remote controlled from inside the cabin and allows for combatting larger fires from a safe distance.

The vehicles are fully equipped with ancillary equipment and for the enhanced “top to toe” safety of the Firemen up-to-date ROSENBAUER Personal Protection Equipment has been delivered as well: helmets “Heros-Titan”, turnout-suits “FireMax 3”, slip-on boots “Austria” and gloves “SafeGrip 3”.

INTERSCHUTZ 2022: June 20 - 25, Hanover

New date for INTERSCHUTZ: June 2022

Verschiebung der INTERSCHUTZ auf 14.-19. Juni 2021
The dates for INTERSCHUTZ have been changed, with the event now taking place from 20 to 25 June 2022. The decision to reschedule the world's leading trade fair fire, rescue, civil protection and safety/security was taken by Deutsche Messe after a process of thorough deliberation and intensive discussion with key market players.

Unfortunately, the COVID-19 crisis still has a firm grip on all of us and does not yet allow us to hold trade fairs and major events safely at the present time. However, the safety and health of people is of course our top priority as a system provider in fire and disaster control. We are therefore in favor of postponing INTERSCHUTZ until 2022, because we all want nothing more than an INTERSCHUTZ as we know it: an unforgettable trade show experience and a meeting place for fire departments from all over the world, without compromising on the safety of our customers, visitors and guests.
