Fire and emergencies can happen any time, any where.
As such, part of Samoa Victim Support Group’s responsibilities as a carer of abused and vulnerable children at the Campus of Hope shelter facility, is to ensure that the children are aware of the safety procedures should an emergency happen.
Ongoing trainings from the Fire and Emergency Safety Authority (FESA) assisted SVSG in ensuring the children’s safety while at the Campus.
During the week, Commander Kueni Alatimu of FESA led the 5-member training team who shared with the children on what to do, where to evacuate to and some assistance required in times of fires or other emergencies. Demonstrations were carried out on how to put out a fire, staying calm and helping others in times of emergencies.
The training motivated some of the children survivors of violence cared for at the Campus to become firefighters themselves as they relate really well to the life-saving nature of FESA’s work.
“Thank you so much to the Commissioner of the Fire and Emergency Services Authority, Salā Fa’afouina Mupō for coordinating this training. Thank you also to Commander Kueni Alatimu and the team for being patient with the children during the training session.” Siliniu Lina Chang, SVSG President
We look forward to ongoing sessions w ith the Team at Tuanaimato for the safety of the children on Campus.
