Title : FIRE SAFETY DRILL
Schools have a critical infrastructure entrusted with the responsibility of creating citizens of tomorrow. A safe and secure environment is a prerequisite for effective teaching and learning. Thus ensuring safety of children, teachers and staff members during disasters is necessary. Fire safety awareness and prevention remains a key issue for students and educators alike, and Happy Home Public School strives to make its teachers aware and up-to-date. Keeping this in mind, a workshop on ?How to operate Fire-fighting equipment? was organized for the teachers on 15 September 2018 in the school multi-purpose Hall. The speaker on the occasion was a Fire Safety Counselor Mr. Parvesh Kumar (Sub Officer). He shared simple and easy to follow safety tips, explained the functioning of a fire extinguisher and spoke of the DOs and DON?Ts regarding possibilities of fire. Some teachers were even called on to operate the fire-extinguishers independently. He also spoke on the need to watch out for warning signs and practice safeguards to prevent occurrence of incidents that may range from inconvenient to life-threatening. Some first-aid tips and demonstrations were also given. The session proved to be informative and an imperative lesson on life-saving skills.
