Firemen: Friends in Need
Fire services are so vital to our needs that according to law they have the right of way in an emergencety ahead of an ambulance and a police car. These firefighters are on duty around-the-clock while we sleep at night or go about our regular lives. When a call comes in, they are immediately prepared to help those who are in crisis and danger. They perform a service that can encourage young people to explore public service and to volunteer when needed.
To motivate and let our learners know of the fireman’s indispensable service to society and life, learners of grades 1st and 2nd were taken on an educational trip to the fire station at Pal. They learned how important these institutions play in keeping us constantly safe and secure. The trip was also intended to support UNSDG goal number 16, which calls on nations to create powerful institutions to safeguard the vulnerable. The police, fire department, and health departments all fall under the emergency services umbrella, and they all need to be strong and independent to be able to provide aid to anyone, regardless of caste, creed, sex, or religion. Our students discovered how they might take part in this revolution in building strong institutions for peace and justice.
