HCM City (VNA) – A large-scale firefighting drill was organised at a 32-storey building in Ho Chi Minh City on November 28.

The event attracted the participation of nearly 4,000 people, including around 1,000 firefighters and emergency responders, and 3,000 local residents playing the part of the victims.

The scenario was a gas leak in a restaurant which led to a big explosive, and an incident causing thick smoke in an apartment in the Vincom Centre B building.

The drill helped improve the capacity of search and rescue skills of participating forces in the context of the increasing risk of fire incidents in multistoried buildings.-VNA
