The Community of Otjiwarongo was left confused today when The Ministry of Urban and Rural Development staged a simulation exercise today, to showcase how fast stakeholders respond during a risk and crisis management.
This exercise was done in a form of a drama, scripted: a school bus was on its way to transporting learners to a sport tournament and due to the recklessness of the driver that was drinking and driving, a car accident occurred.
This exercise was the first of its kind and it was a collaboration between the Otjiwarongo Municipality, Okakarara Municipality, Otavi Municipality, Ministry of Health, Namibian Police, Namibian Defense Force and the Fire Brigade. The aim of the exercise is to improve the qualities of deliverance and to promote cautiousness on the road, so we save lives.
