We don’t know as to when we will be confronted by accidents or events that need an immediate response, thus, it is our advantage that we know what should be done during such times.”

“We are the frontliners in terms of public safety, thus, people look upon us in every untoward incident. We cannot afford to appear incapable in their eyes, because we cannot afford to lose their trust.
