Koga Factory’s Volunteer Fire Brigade Wins Firefighting Tournament
Sanoh maintains a disaster prevention system that places volunteer fire brigades at every factory site to respond in the event of emergencies.
On Saturday, October 29, 2016, five members selected from the Koga Factory (in Ibaraki Prefecture) volunteer fire brigade participated in the 16th Annual Koga City Fire Department Firefighting Tournament organized by the Koga City Fire Department. The Sanoh brigade outperformed the other five competing brigades to win the tournament.
The tournament draws volunteer fire brigades from companies based in the local area to compete against one another, with the aim of strengthening the participants’ disaster prevention systems and improving their skills at extinguishing a fire in its initial stages. Each brigade performs a series of firefighting drills involving the use of fire hydrants and hoses, during which they are evaluated based on their precision, speed, teamwork, and other factors.
This year is the third time that Sanoh has participated in the tournament; our prior achievements were second place in the group category in 2014 and the Most Excellent Award in the individual category for two years in a row in 2015 and 2016. The brigade members selected this time were all first-time participants, but they independently conducted intensified training in preparation for the event, including receiving guidance from the local fire department. The thorough coaching and training by the veterans and the strong will of the members themselves contributed to the wining of the group category.
