One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to enquire in his temple.(Psalm 27:4)
"In addition to temples, surely another holy place on earth ought to be our homes. The feelings of holiness in my home prepared me for feelings of holiness in the temple." James E. Faust
The Cebu City Philippines Temple conducted orientation and training to Temple employees from all department working at the complex. They were brief on the Fire detection & Alarm system and the Fire suppression system in place. They were also refreshed with the emergency response plan and the responsibility of each employee in scenario of fire, earthquakes and during the evacuation. The vacant lot adjacent to the complex was the scene for the fire extinguishing activity. Participants did not mind the searing heat of the 12 noon sun and of the flame as everyone excitedly participated in the activity. During the 2 Fire hoses set up event, the Security Department tied up with Laundry Department in setting the quickest time of less a minute.
The event was culminated with them aiming the fire hose to the plants as the imaginary fire. The activity is part of the regular readiness update of the temple workers and firefighting system in the complex. The engineering team facilitated the activity in conjunction with the observance of Fire Prevention Month.
