One long blast, followed by
two short ones and repeated
three times on the whistles of
the two Lago Powerhouses alert-
ed employees and many resi-
dents of San Nicolas and sur-
roundings on February 8, 1973,
at 10 a.m. For those who knew,
it meant that the first surprise
fire drill for the year was on at
Lago. The Fire Section recently
announced that a number of
these fire drills will be held this
The site of this "emergency"
was the Upper Tank Farm area,
and firefighters, employees and
Aruba residents found out soon
what and where the fire was by
dialing 5: "Fire" at Tank 367.
Two equipment trucks and
two foam pumpers were rushed
to the scene, driven by Fire Sec-
tion employees and shift person-
nel from the Laboratory and Oil
Movements Divisions. Volunteers
together with firefighters from
the Oil Movements and Labora-
tories deployed hoses to provide
cooling water to Tank 367 and
adjacent Tanks 366 and 357,
while one team of volunteers and
Fire Section employees ran hose
lines to foam chambers and
hooked up Lago's latest foam
pumper for operation.
A new innovation was the use
of smoke bombs placed inside
and on the roof of the tank to
help simulate a fire condition.
Further drills are planned
throughout the year and will be
conducted on our docks, tank
field manifolds and around oper-

eating units.
Lago has eight fire trucks to
combat all types of fire situa-
tions, including three foam pum-
pers (one equipped with a 54-ft.
squirt boom), two tank wagons
each with a capacity of 2500
gallons of foam, two equipment
trucks, one of which carries a
2000-lb. dry chemical unit, and
one mobile column truck.
Lago's fire fighting group in-
cludes the Fire Section person-
nel, assisted by four teams of
volunteer firefighters and shift
groups of Laboratory and Oil
Movements personnel who to-
gether with operating personnel
take initial action in any emer-
Many small fires are exting-
uished promptly by employees
who have received training in
the proper use of hand exting-
uishers. Fires that require mobi-
lization of Lago's fire fighting
forces should be reported im-
mediately by calling Phone 2222.
This emergency number 2222
should be remembered by every
employee. After this number has
been notified, the General Fire
Alarm will be sounded immedia-
tely by the Powerhouse whistles:
Five long blasts, repeated three
times for a refinery fire, and
eight short blasts on the harbor
siren for a fire in the dock area.
When the fire is out, one long
blast will be given. Fire alarm
news is put at once on Lago's
Dial 5, which is the number to
call to obtain information and
location of the emergency.

From several vantage points, Lago's firefighters take positions to
combat a "fire" In one of Lago's tanks.
For dl varlos punto ventahoso, Lago su bombers ta tuma nan posl-
clon pa combat e "candela" den uno di Lago su tankinan.
