Manufacturer Equate has launched a fire safety awareness campaign in Kuwait focusing on the potential fire hazards in homes.
Equate is a producer of petrochemicals and the world’s top supplier of ethylene glycol and is running its campaign with the support of the Kuwait Fire Force (KFF).
The initiative, which runs until the end of March, includes KFF education booths at The Avenues Mall (until March 23) and in Kuwait University (March 28 to 31) in bid to increase awareness and understanding of potential fire hazards in the home, and how to ensure safety measures are followed.
Equate’s sponsorship includes participation by its Emergency Response Team (ERT) responsible for health and safety at the global petrochemical company, which will be present on the stands to share information and actively support KFF teams.
Also Equate has donated vital safety equipment, such as fire extinguishers, fire blankets and smoke detectors, for distribution on the stands.
Equate Vice President Nawaf Al Khaldi said: “Kuwait’s Fire Force has been providing a critical service in order to keep both community and industry safe and also at our homes and work environments. Equate too is proud to have been helping to promote its safety initiatives for more than 10 years.”
He added: “We hope that this new campaign will help our community to become more aware of potential hazards in the home, learn what measures should be taken to prevent accidents from happening, and what to do should a situation occur.”
