XCCS hosts fire drill

Extreme Customs Clearing Services (XCCS) held their annual emergency simulation drill next to the B2 coastal road recently.

The drill was conducted to test the readiness of all relevant emergency services of Walvis Bay. The drill was in the form of a mock-up road accident in which a light vehicle collided with an XCCS fuel tanker truck.
Emergency services took under 10 minutes to reach the accident from the moment they were notified of the “accident”.
The operations manager at XCCS, Mr Raymond Hummel, expressed his satisfaction with the out-come of the drill. “The initial call to report the incident was clear and straightforward. The response time of all emergency services was satisfactory and so also the coordination be-tween the different stakeholders”.
Hummel explained the importance for XCCS to be accountable to all road users. The response to and handling of road accidents involving the company’s fleet of fuel tanker trucks are one aspect of such accountability.
Hummel made use of the opportunity to announce XCCS will start next year with a free defensive driving clinics, for drivers with a valid driving licence.
