As a part of raising the Fire Safety Awareness in the Primary School in the State of Goa the “Safer School Safer India” Programme was unveiled at the hands of    Shri Laxmikant Parsekar, Hon’ble Chief Minister on 14th April 2015.  This is a joint initiative the Directorate of Fire & Emergency Services, Directorate of Education (State Council of Educational Research and Training (SCERT)) and Underwriter Laboratories (India).  The concept of Safer School Safer India envisages an intention to built a Safer India, to safe guard children and teach them how to stay safe.  This intensive campaigning is for enhancing the awareness level of Primary School Children and through them the families on Safety Culture.

The approach is to include Fire Safety Education as part of the school curriculum, with atleast one period a week dedicated for this purpose.  The Training module is designed to create interest in children at primary level   (Ist to IVth Std.) and involve them in activities which will lead to Fire Prevention and Fire Safety learning.

In the Phase I,  46 Primary School Teachers from 27 Schools of Tiswadi Taluka were taken up for the ‘Training of Trainers’  Programme in two batches.  The Module on topic “Fire & Safety – Good Fire, Bad Fire”  was imparted to the Teachers which included various aspects of Fire Safety and which was also provided in software to enable them to carry the training at their respective schools.
