The training, organised by the hotel, was to equip the staff to acquire fire safety skills.
Speaking at the end of the training, Marc Van Maldegem, general manager of Kombo Beach Hotel, said the training is “very important” for the safety of the hotel guests.
It was not the first time that the hotel organised such training.In October 2015, some of the staff were trained on First Aid and in November of the same year, others attended the hotel’s Triple M training.
“The management of Kombo Beach finds it important that many of our valued staff received these useful trainings.The benefits of these trainings are not for the hotel and the guests alone but also for your own home and environment,” Mr Maldegem said.
“Based on these trainings, you are in a better position to provide support when you are traveling to and from work or enjoying a day with the family at home or when on a visit to a friend.These trainings give you skills for life,” he added.
The Kombo Beach general manager called on those who benefited from the trainings to share the knowledge and skills gained with their co-workers so that they also benefit from it.
He thanked the Gambia Fire and Rescue Services for delivering a “very useful and professional training which covered all areas, both theory and practical”.

He urged the training participants to make the best use of the knowledge gained.
