Mumbai: Now, BMC Schools To Include Fire Safety And Gardening Lessons


Now, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has decided to include fire safety lessons for children in the civic-run schools across the city. Since the fire brigade belongs to the civic body, the children will be informed about various measures to prevent fire.

This comes at a time when BMC is making efforts to spread awareness by informing about the fire safety in the background of rising fire incidents in Mumbai and neighbouring cities too.

Under this initiative, the children will be taken to fire stations where they will be informed about the work of the fire brigade. They will also be informed about the importance of trees, how to plant them, and also about garden-related activities, by visiting the BMC parks. BMC officials said that the project is currently at an initial stage. The department will soon conduct meetings and chalk out a comprehensive plan which will be executed from June-July 2022 when the schools re-open for the next academic session. Besides, amid climate change issues and to spread awareness on the same, educating the children about it will encourage them to plant trees as they will be provided with information on which trees to plant and how to identify the seeds of the trees, officials added. Talking further about the tree plantation lessons to the students, they shared that BMC has its own parks where it has been developed and planted various types of trees over the years. From an environmental point of view, the idea is to educate children about garden activities.
