To raise awareness among its employees and ensure their safety

Kuwait, 15 March 2023:  Burgan Bank recently conducted an emergency evacuation drill for its employees at its head office. The drill came within the framework of the Bank’s willingness to train and educate employees on the proper steps of the evacuation process, to ensure their safety and security in emergency situations.
The evacuation, which was supervised by a team from the Kuwait Fire Force, helped evaluate employee response time, as well as understand potential gaps and areas for improvement. The staff underwent comprehensive training on how to manage disasters or accidents. Part of the exercise also involved the simulation of a fire in the building and a situation wherein few individuals were trapped and injured on one of the floors.

Therefore, we conduct regular and periodic trainings on emergency situations in order to ensure their safety and protect customers’ private and confidential data.” Al-Hadbah added: “These drills contribute to consolidating our customers' confidence in the levels of quality and efficiency that we are working to achieve.  In addition to the drills, we always apply the latest approved international standards and methods that ensure maximum safety.'
Burgan Bank’s staff responded successfully to the mock drill and evacuated the head office building of all personnel on time. The exercise was carried out under the supervision of the Director of Capital Governorate Fire Department, Brigadier Ahmad Al-Rishadi, in the presence of the Officer of Fire Prevention Department of the Capital Governorate. The exercise also involved the fire teams of Al Helali and Al Madina Fire centers, led by the Head of Al Helali Fire center, Brigadier Fahad Al-Ajmi and the Head of Al Madina Fire center, Colonel Mohammed Al – Ali, where two teams were formed for rescue operations and others to fight the fire. On behalf of the bank the exercise was coordinated by the General Services Administration department.
