The aim of Fire Prevention Week is that the general public and, very specifically, the elderly and children, know how to protect themselves.
The figures are extremely worrying; every year there are more than 400 deaths from drowning, over 170 people are killed in fires and explosions, and almost 1000 lives are lost in road traffic accidents.
We have to accept that human error is inevitable, but certain actions can be taken to help reduce the number of victims. To do so, it is essential to work on accident prevention.
Learn more about our programs to raise public awareness of the importance of engaging in responsible behavior that minimizes the risk of exposure to accidents.
