Cebu Libre - - NEWS - Cebu Daily News

THE Bureau of Fire Pro­tec­tion in Cen­tral Visayas (BFP-7) is plan­ning to cre­ate a pro­gram to ex­tend its In­for­ma­tion Ed­u­ca­tion Cam­paign (IEC) to per­sons with dis­abil­i­ties (PWDs).

Fire Chief Insp. Noel Nel­son Ababon, Cebu City fire mar­shall, said that fire drill train­ings may be avail­able for PWDs, es­pe­cially for blind peo­ple.

The train­ing in­cludes how to exit from a struc­ture razed by fire.

Ababon also sug­gested that path­ways shall be made for blind peo­ple in malls to help them find the exit in case of fire.

The fire mar­shall, how­ever, clar­i­fied that they are yet to come up with the IEC ma­te­ri­als for the blind, as it should be made in Braille, where words are con­veyed through raised dots. /
