To fight a fire, “Safety” is the first priority but it is also important to have“Knowledge of firefighting”, “Fire extinguisher capability”, “Combination
firefighting by fire ex tinguisher and spraying water ”,“Defensive and offensive firefighting” and “Fire hose handling command”.
MDPC adapts National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) instruction such as NFPA 600 “Standard on Industrial Fire Brigades” and NFPA 1081 “Standard for Industrial Fire Brigade Member Professional Qualifications”.
MDPC provides opportunities to variety of training courses to learn worldwide standard firefighting through classroom training and a field training using actual fire.


MDPC has adopted Incident Command System (ICS), which is an established worldwide standard for the incident management. It customizes the system to “MDPC-ICS” using MPDC past experiences and knowledge. To share the worldwide standard with private companies, MDPC provides trainings/exercises based on MDPC-ICS and provides supports to make oil spill contingency plans to the petrochemical complexes.

LDSS is an incident response service for inland petrochemical factories. If HM spill and fire occur at an inland factory, the spill immediately spreads through trenches, roads, rivers. In that case, the spill may generates health and environmental impact at totally different location from the source of spill. MDPC has made a standby contract with the inland petrochemical facilities and provides not only an incident response service but also HM trainings for the facility workers in times of peace.
