FIRE SAFETY POSTER COMPETITION ON THE EVE OF NATIONAL FIRE SERVICE DAY 14th APRIL 2014

           On the eve of the National Fire Service Day which is being observed on 14th April’2014, a Poster Competition is held every year by the Directorate of Fire and Emergency Services. This Competition is aimed at promoting awareness among Middle and Secondary School Children in the Age group of 7 to 14 years. This activity has been very popular among school children for the past 5 years. Our experience shows that when you reach out to the kids, it reaches to the entire family and ultimately raise the level of Fire Safety for all. Children learn best through participation.
