Fire safety awareness programme at Thermax
A fire safety awareness programme was organised at five Thermax managed schools in Pune. Conducted by the company’s safety department, the programme was designed to make children aware of the need for quick evacuation of school buildings in case of fire or other emergencies.
During the fire drill at Anantrao Pawar Memorial English Medium School, Dopodi, the entire school with 318 students, 27 staff and some parents present at that time were evacuated in just 2 minutes 39 seconds. The safety team used drums to guide children to assemble without panic. Kailash Vishwakarma, safety coordinator from Power division conducted this training. Kailash says, “The idea was to focus on young minds to create awareness and to educate them on the importance of safety”.
