MVFRA VISION - To Be The Leading Volunteer  Fire & Rescue Association in The Region

First lessons on fighting fires
THE SUN, Thursday November 11,

PENANG, Wed: The first local Fire Kids Club Safety Workshop will be held for children aged six to 10 on Sunday at Island Plaza.

Don Law, workshop organizer Medic-Link Sdn Bhd’s- managing director, said there is a need to train children on how to respond during a fire, especially when both parents are at work.

“The child may be left alone, or with a miad, who might not know what to do,” he said.

“It is important that the children be taught what to do when there is a fire, so that young lives are not lost,” Law said.

“To hold the children’s interest, the three-hour workshop will involve them in rescue and fire-fighting demonstrations,” he said.

The workhop will be conducted by a group of 20 volunteers from the Malaysian Volunteer Fire and Rescue Association based in Kuala Lumpur.

The workshop, which is sponsored by Hotel Equatorial, Peneng, is expected to attract 300 young participants.

“At the workshop’s end certificates of participation will be handed out to the children.

“The club will also send them updates on club events such as refresher courses,” Law said.

The participation fee for the workshop is RM20 a child.

To register, call Mani or Fred (04-577/999/155).
