KEEPING in mind the safety and security of guests and colleagues, Shangri-La's Fijian Resort held an emergency response drill on Friday.
And resort general manager Michael Monks said as a company, they have placed utmost importance on safety for all guests and colleagues.
"We have a fully trained emergency response team who were recently recertified in advanced first aid techniques," Mr Monks said.
"The drill we carried out was critical in that it was a full dress rehearsal for us as well as the local authorities. It is part of our ongoing efforts to ensure the safety and security of our guests and all our colleagues."
He said seven members of the resort's emergency response team were involved in the emergency drill, with the Sigatoka police, National Fire Authority and emergency paramedics also present.
"This is the first time for us to carry out this drill in 2014. We also carry out regular testing on our fire alarm system on a monthly basis."
