Fire Prevention Week Focuses on Youths
The Guyana Fire Service during this week will be hosting several activities to mark Fire prevention week as it seeks to intensify efforts to educate citizens about the dangers of fire.
Fire Prevention Officer, Gregory Wickham pointed out that various divisions will be interacting with students and community members through an exhibition. Wickham said youths are targeted since it is hoped that they will spread the message among their peers and family members.
During the exhibitions members of the public will be engaged in talks and demonstrations focusing on fire prevention. This year’s observance is being held under the theme “Promoting safer communities through active participation in fire prevention.”
