-Accidents occur without any invitation or prior information.  And in many cases, most of the people are not aware of what the very crucial steps are that could be taken to prevent, as well as to save ourselves, and others from a potential tragedy.

Being budding hoteliers and future hoteliers, it is very important to know how to deal with unpredictable situations in case of emergencies. Keeping  all this in mind, Regency College Of Culinary Arts  And Hotel Management, the top college in Hyderabad conducted a “fire fighting” workshop  in association with “When-It-Strikes’’ on April 21st 2022 in the college seminar hall.
