They acted quickly and at great risk to their personal safety…
ADNOC has praised a team of petrol station attendants for their bravery and quick thinking after a supercar caught fire at one of the company’s petrol stations on Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Street earlier this month.
The incident, which you can see in the video below, took place on 8 August and was caught by CCTV cameras. It shows the attendants quickly getting hold of fire extinguishers and containing the blaze in a matter of seconds.
Sheikh Saif bin Zayed, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of the Interior posted the video to his Twitter account on Sunday, thanking ADNOC and praising its implementation of high level of safety standards.
