Anthony Oluoch – Africa Fire Mission Kenya Chapter SAFE Project (Student Awareness of Fire Education)
The Africa Fire Mission, Kenya Chapter works closely with fire departments in training women under various self-help groups and students in high school and colleges (S.A.F.E – Student Awareness for Fire Education) on fire prevention and propagation of safe fire practices. Fire safety behavior among households and institutions improves with in‐house fire prevention interventions. Along with legislative measures and engineering interventions, developing a culture of safety is critical. Better education and awareness can help the community move from adopting a ‘fatalistic response’ to accidents to one where awareness and making ‘safe choices’ prevails.
