Voyage towards a Caring and Resilient Bangladesh

Being the first responder organization, FSCD shared its experience of noteworthy incidents like Tazreen fire and Rana Plaza collapse. Brigadier General Ali Ahmed Khan, PSC, Director General of FSCD and other important officials of FSCD were present in the sharing meeting.
