Fauji Fertiliser Company Limited (FFC) is the largest urea manufacturer in Pakistan, operating three world scale urea plants with an aggregate capacity of over 2 million metric tonnes per annum. Along with financial progress, FFC’s Corporate Social Responsibility programmes contribute generously in the areas of education, health, disaster relief and environmental protection.
In order to enhance effectiveness in combating an industrial disaster, FFC has an active “Community Awareness & Emergency Response” (CAER) programme, along with well defined “ON SITE” disaster handling procedures. One of the main responsibilities of this programme is to create awareness about industrial disaster management by engaging the community living adjacent to FFC plants and facilities.
FFC co-ordinated a training exercise with the villagers and government authorities to handle an industrial disaster on December 28, 2012 at Basti Ahmed Khan, Sadiqabad. In this successful joint exercise, Rescue-1122, DDMA, TMA, THQ Hospital, along with volunteers, the Police and Motorway Police, actively participated in handling an industrial disaster. A large number of spectators from the surrounding villages and industries also gathered at the site during the exercise.-PR
