Citadel - - SNAPSHOTS -

Safe Kids Foun­da­tion, in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Honey­well, launched its new pro­gramme of fire safety aware­ness for kids at home, which will help to pre­vent and re­duce burns and scalds among chil­dren un­der 14 years in Pune. In its en­deav­our to spread fire safety aware­ness across Pune, Safe Kids Foun­da­tion and Honey­well In­dia have ex­panded the na­tion­ally rec­og­nized ‘Safe Kids at Home’ pro­gramme t o Pim­pri-Chinch­wad Mu­nic­i­pal Cor­po­ra­tion (PCMC) area last month. ‘Safe Kids at Home’ does not stop at safety train­ing for chil­dren alone, but is a pivot for bring­ing cit­i­zens and civic agen­cies to­gether to drive a strong safety cul­ture in the city. Their aim is to reach 100,000 chil­dren and 75,000 par­ents in the PCMC area, adding up to a to­tal of 425,000 stu­dents and 250,000 par­ents across Pune by 2018. Per­son­al­i­ties in­volved in this ini­tia­tive are Cinthia Pinto (Pro­gram Di­rec­tor of Safe Kids Foun­da­tion), Ki­ran Gawade (Chief Fire Ofcer, PCMC) and Vikas Chadha (Pres­i­dent, Honey­well In­dia).
