THE STAR, November 11

PENANG  : A private company has embarked on a project to train 25,000 children on fire safety through the Fire Kids' Club safety workshop to be held nationwide.

Medic Link Sdn Bhd managing director Don Law said the fun and interactive workshops were designed to educate children on various aspects of fire safety and prevention.

He said the workshop would prepare them physically and mentally on the event of fire, adding that the first two workshops in Kuala Lumpur and Sungai Petani had received great response.

"Children are trained on firefighting techniques which are vital knowledge in saving their own and other people's lives," he told a press conference yesterday.

Law said the first workshop in Penang for children aged from six to 10 years would be held at Island Plaza this Sunday, from 10am to 1pm.

The event is organized jointly with the state Education Department and Hotel Equatorial.

Twenty volunteers from the Malaysian Volunteer Fire & Rescue Association will be flown in from Kuala Lumpur to conduct the workshop.

Participants will be involved in fire-rescue demonstration, Stop, Drop and Roll, Learn to Crawl in Smoky Area and Fireman Drag and Escape, among others.
