An awareness programme on the school’s fire protection system was organised at Saint Soldier International School, Sec 28 B, Chandigarh wherein the fire safety device specialist Col. Dharmender Thakur made the school staff familiar with the school’s fire protection system. During the one hour long programme, the staff was made aware about the different causes of outbreak of fire. They were also taught to use different types of portable fire extinguishers and sprinklers to cope with the danger of fire hazards. The practical training of fire safety devices given to the staff proved to be very beneficial. According to Col.
