#BeFireSafe workshops after fires

10 Feb,2016Fire Awareness

Following the recent Hawston Fire that took place, the Working on Fire (WoF) Western Cape, Fire Awareness Department conducted a fire safe workshop for 12 Early Childhood Development teachers from the Hawston community, at the Overstrand Thusong Centre.

Fire Awareness Training Officer, Androlene Killian said: “The purpose of these workshops is to educate and empower teachers with the knowledge to understand and identify fire risks in and around their schools.” Teachers were also given knowledge on how they can conduct their own training in their different schools for their kids. It is important that kids are taught about the dangers of fires from an early age.
