Fire Alarm!

leave a comment »

I just returned back from a monitoring trip and noticed something which I felt, I need to share with you all.

Once we landed in Male’ International Airport from Hanimaadhoo, we were escorted to the domestic terminal by Maldivian ground staff. After around 2 – 3 minutes of our arrival, there was a fire alarm inside the terminal. We then questioned the ground staff who never replied to our questions and just ignored. Later, another ground staff came and when we questioned him, he said he think it’s a false alarm and they are trying to fix it. But it left us wondering whether there was a protocol followed in the airport or not. What should be done when a fire alarm goes on?

I feel, whether it’s a false alarm or not, people has to be given the information and necessary protocols should be followed. Who knows, it might really be a good fire alarm. I have complained to the civil aviation authority about the incident and I hope they would do something about it.
