MICT HSE, ERT hold emergency response training


Heliport fire, vessel fire and chemical spill are some of the most uncommon incidents that could happen in a port. Rare as they may be, the resulting damage can be catastrophic.
In line with the goal of staying constantly prepared for these and other similar incidents, the Manila International Container Terminal (MICT) HSE Department – in coordination with ICTSI Global HSSE and MICT Engineering-GSS Departments – conducted heliport emergency response training last December at the grounds of Consolidated Training Systems Inc. in Tanza, Cavite. Fifteen MICT employees took part in the grueling exercises that included putting out simple and complex fires that could occur during helicopter landing and takeoff.

Within the same month, the MICT Emergency Response Team conducted a table-top drill that focused on vessel fire scenario with oil spill at one of the terminal’s berths. This activity was done in collaboration with the Philippine Ports Authority, Bureau of Fire, Philippine Coast Guard, Harbor Star and Prime BMD.
The successful conduct of these activities highlights the Company’s commitment to safety in all aspects of its operations, and high level of preparedness in responding to all types of emergency situations.
