M&C Personnel Achieve Two Million Manhours without Disabling Accident

On April 13, 1971, the M&C
employees reached another
milestone in safety: over
2,000,000 manhours of accident-
free job performance. Previous-
ly, on March 11, 1971, the M&C
personnel completed two years
of operation without a disabling
injury. Together, these represent
the best records attained by any
division in Lago's history.
In recognition of this special
achievement, all personnel of
Mechanical's Maintenance &
Construction Division received
a decal as a personal safety
award. The presentations were
made during safety talks at va-

Aruba Red Cross Acquires Ambulance t

To Improve Service to Community

Friday, April 23. was an im-
portant day for the Aruba Red
Cross organization, which oper-
ates directly under the Dutch
Red Cross That day the Aruba
Red Cross got its first emer-
gency ambulance to give bet-
ter service to the Aruban com-
munity. In a brief ceremony at
the Red Cross headquarters at
Dakota, the board transferred
the ambulance to the Red Cross
The brigade is under com-
mand of Major Dr A D. Zijder-
veld, while Jean H. E. Baiz, a

ernment. Every year, they also
assist in Aruba's carnival par-
ades Last month they took part
in the parade on Queen's birth-
day (April 30) along with the
Dutch Marines. The brigade
members, who practically all
have had first-aid training, are
also prepared to assist in any
disaster on the island. When-
ever drives are held to help
victims overseas, the brigade
coordinates such activities and
takes care of packing and dis-
patching donated items.
Originally instituted during
the Second World War, the bri-
gade at present has 40 men and
30 ladies as active members.
The board of the Aruba Red
Cross Chapter consists of: Er-
win G. Oehlers, chairman; Jan
Neeleman, treasurer; H. E. Pe-
reira, secretary; and F. M. Booi,

Fire Training Ground Now Offers

Improved, Up- to- Date Facilities

Lago's Fire Training Ground
located at the west end of the
refinery has been converted in-
to a complex resembling a
miniature refinery
On an area more than double
its previous size, several new
structures and equipment are
now neatly arranged to repre-
sent actual situations in a ref-

ment and structures include:
three tanks, one for gasoline,
one for kerosene and one for
gasoil; two pumps, a tower, a
small tank, condensers, pipe
banks, overhead flanges, load-
ing platform, chlorine cylinder,
a large fire pit and several pans
Several practice evolutions will
enable the trainees to see the
benefit from and use proper ap-
plication of drychemical and
water fog.
The training ground now has
six hydrants instead of the pre-
vious single hydrant. There is
also a new smoke house for
practice with air-breathing ap-
The various structures are
also spaced out so that training

attended Texas A&M Fire School
