The Managing Director of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), Saleh Dunoma has said that officers and men of the Airport Rescue and Fire Fighting Services of the Authority would continue to receive professional training to meet global standards.

He said they would also undergo overseas programmes to enhance their proficiency in fire fighting in line with recommendation of the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO).

Dunoma made this commitment at the Crew Commanders/Fire Fighter Initial/Renal course at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Ikeja.

Represented at the event by his Chief of Staff, Mr. Kabiru Mohammed, the managing director called on the firemen to take advantage of the ongoing training programme to improve on their professional competence, which would ensure safety at airports.

The station commandant, Mr. Adebola Odugbemi, also emphasised the importance of the training and promised to share his knowledge and experience on the job with the participating staff.

The three week programme is being undertaken by fire and fighting officers drawn from different airports across the country.
