Fire Safety Sensitization and Simulation Exercise for Deaf People

December 1, 2019: Kathmandu, DPNet-Nepal, Sarokar Foundation, and other like-minded organizations organized a fire safety sensitization and simulation exercise for deaf people today. This program was organized to mark the International Day of Persons with Disabilities with the theme, “The Future is Accessible”.

In the first part of the program, deaf people were sensitized about fire safety theoretically and in the second session, fire safety simulation exercise was done in close observation of fire safety experts. It was an effort to spread the concept of “Public Safety for All”. It ensures "Inclusive" Disaster Risk Reduction (IDRR) for Persons with Disability (PWD), marginalized communities and senior citizens.

Chairperson of Sarokar Foundation Pallav Pant stressed the need for such simulation programs for the person with disability. General Secretary of DPNet-Nepal, Mr. Raju Thapa expressed his commitment to contribute to such events that focus on disability-inclusive disaster risk reduction.
