Safeguarding against Fires – Update

Share on Facebook Tweet Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Dear colleagues in Bungoma County. We have an update to our earlier post.

According to unnamed sources within the Bungoma County Administration the County’s fire squad does possess foam for fighting petrol accidents – but the fire truck could not move to the accident. The reason being that one driver had “the key” with him when he stayed at Eldoret during the time of the explosion.

Before blaming this driver alone think about several follow-up questions that are quiet obvious: How many keys, how many drivers, what are the rules for keeping keys …  ??? Who is in charge for the rules and for making sure they are observed?

And before focusing on these questions alone you might not forget the main questions in our earlier posting.
