Safe Campaign activities held at AUK.

Kuwait Fire Service Directorate (KFSD) and Equate Petrochemical Company, Kuwait's first private sector petrochemical company, recently organised Safety at Every Home Campaign (Safe) at the American University of Kuwait (AUK).

The event included an exhibition and a seminar attended by several students and staff members.

Dr Nizar Hamzeh, AUK president, said: "Without any doubt, different types of awareness hold great significance, especially when it relates to avoiding fires and how to deal with them to ensure preserving lives and property at all places, such as educational organisations due to the safety of all staff and employees being of great value. Based on that, AUK is pleased to host Safe Campaign which represents the efforts of KFSD and Equate to create awareness among the college's students and staff through this three-day activity. Being an educational organisation, AUK continuously aspires to support initiatives that benefit and serve the society and its members as a whole."

Colonel Khalil Al-Ameer, director of public relations and media, KFSD said: "In an effort to avoid different hazards and potential incidents at home and other various places, Safe Campaign has been launched to embody the strategic objectives KFSD is aiming to achieve throughout Kuwait by having such a partnership with Equate."

He added: The campaign will hold a number of awareness activities at a number of places, includes colleges, universities and malls where KFSD members will share guidelines and precautions regarding fire extinguishers, types of fires, smoke alarms, gas cylinders, gas leaks, fire evacuation, dealing with different emergencies and the importance of calling Emergency Number 112 when needed.
