Stop, Drop, and Roll!: Fire Safety Training at Pwoje Espwa
If you have seen news from Haiti over the last few weeks, you may have noticed that protests often involve fires. The burning of tires, cars, buildings, and other items creates a hazardous environment.
Last week, our head of security, Chief Bazile, took the opportunity to educate our staff, resident children, and community students on recognizing hazardous materials and putting out fires. They learned things like what to do when you see a fire, how to alert others, and how to properly use a fire extinguisher (which are strategically located all over campus).
Our priority, above all else, will always be to keep the children safe. We are proud to have a staff that is committed to upholding this responsibility, and to our values of faith, hope and love.
