Pakistan State Oil commends the efforts of its outlet’s staff whose prompt response helped extinguish a huge blaze that caught a passenger coach en route up-country form Karachi on Super Highway on Wednesday, December 28, 2016. In a desperate attempt to secure precious human lives, the coach-driver resorted to moving the burning coach to a nearby PSO outlet for rescue but the vigilant and HSE-trained outlet staff prevented its entry into the outlet to avert further disaster. They immediately smothered the fire through firefighting gear available at the outlet and rescued the passengers. The quality emergency preparedness at the outlet in consistence with PSO’s policy averted a major calamity and saved dozens of precious lives.
Further, the PSO outlet is completely safe and operational. Our Divisional Engineers reached at the outlet immediately to take a stock of things. They have advised the vendor to refill fire extinguishers immediately. PSO is committed to making unprecedented efforts for high standard emergency preparedness at all of its outlets nationwide in order to deal with any untoward situation.
