North West Disaster Reduction Day
The North West Community Fire Awareness Officer, Sophy Dinko, and the Fire Awareness Training Officer, Martha Tepo, conducted a Fire Safe Talk about the importance of Disaster Risk Reduction at the Aganang Radio Station. The objective of the talk was to raise awareness of how community members can take action to reduce their risk to disasters.
The Communications Cluster encouraged the listeners to be involved in activities that can help reduce these risks by making sure hazardous materials are in a safe place where children cannot reach them and to stop burning in risky areas where it can cause a wildfire and damage land and properties.
“The radio interview was very informative with Safety Tips given to the listeners. It’s our responsibility to take ownership in terms of mitigating the risks of disasters in different communities and building more disaster resilient communities,” said Sophy Dinko.
