“The safety of our employees and customers at Shell Service Stations is of paramount importance to us. We remain committed to reducing operational risks and ensuring our team members are trained and equipped to respond to emergencies,” explained Fabian C. Fernander, Sales & Marketing Manager, Sun Oil Limited at a recent Fire Safety Training Course. 

Sun Oil Limited recently partnered with the Royal Bahamas Police Force for the preventative fire training exercise at the Police Training College on University Drive. Over thirty Service Champions from Shell stations across New Providence participated. Officers from the Royal Bahamas Police Force Fire Branch led the training exercise, providing participants with a briefing on firefighting, giving basic tips on firefighting and explaining the types of fires and extinguishers. The highlight of the training exercise was braving the heat of a real fire for an actual firefighting exercise.

Sun Oil Limited also presented the Royal Bahamas Police Force with a donation, in gratitude for their service to our country and as a token of appreciation for the invaluable fire safety training provided to its employees.
