“The Maldives’ Fire Rescue Team was one of the most highly motivated and skilled teams that I have had the honor to work with, said Roy Nouhra, CEO of ASIS Boats . During the training a fire broke out in Male and the team got dispatched, staying out all night to put out the fire. And they came back in the morning full of energy for the training.
What a great team and great people!

It was a pleasure and an honor to be part of that team” continued Nouhra.

The Airport Maintenance Crews were also provided detailed training in the maintenance and repair of the boats, outboard motors, and on-board fire-fighting equipment.
