Fire Awareness Officers held a workshop to teach early childhood development (EC D) teachers in the Botshabelo area of the Free State about the fundamentals of fire, how fires are started, how to extinguish different types of fires, the different sources that can fuel a fire and how to successfully evacuate during a fire.

Working on Fire has been rolling out FireSafe workshops to ECD centres across the country.

The workshops educate and empower teachers to understand and identify fire risks in and around their schools.

Teachers are also taught how to conduct their own FireSafe workshops with the children at their schools.

Free State Fire Awareness Training Officer Tommy Mokoena says, “We hosted our early childhood development workshop in Botshabelo. We invited various teachers that work in the area and taught them about fire safety inside and outside the house. We expect them to implement what we have taught them.”
