Hazardous Material Simulation Exercise

The Gaborone District Disaster Management Committee in collaboration with Unitrans Botswana  (Pty) Limited  held a simulation exercise on the 16th March 2012 from 1030 hours until 1215 Hours at BTV CIRCLE.
The objectives of the exercise were to:
1. Audit the preparedness of the committee on Disaster Issues.

2. Gauge the core Departments responsive time in case a Disaster occurs.

The exercise involved overturning a scrap tanker/ water bowser to simulate an actual fuel tanker. The Office of District Commissioner would like to apologize for any inconvenience caused. However, it’s believed that the lessons learnt from the exercise would help the various emergency response organizations in attending and addressing such emergencies in the future. The public is informed that there were no causalities. We would like to thank all the various stakeholders who participated in this important exercise. Our gratitude is also extended to all the motorists and the general public for their full cooperation during the simulation exercise.
