LAUNCH OF ‘FIRE SAFETY PROGRAM’ BY SAFE KIDS FOUNDATION
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 Ofcer, PCMC) and Vikas Chadha (President, Honeywell India).
