Gharb and San Lawrenz Primary Schools, through their Health and Safety teacher Mr Joseph DeBrincat organised an awareness day on Tuesday at the Gozo College Gharb Primary School.
A simulation of a car accident was mounted where a Year 6 student called the Emergency Number 112. A team from the Civil Protection Department and an ambulance from the Gozo General Hospital arrived on the scene where they carried out an exciting rescue exercise, giving those present an insight into the procedures performed by the rescue services.
Afterwards the students, staff and parents participated in a hands-on demonstration under supervision, of a chip-pan and LPG gas fire. A fire blanket and appropriate extinguishers were used to tackle those fires.
Mr Peter Paul Mercieca, Station Officer of the CPD, also delivered a talk highlighting the importance of preventing fire accidents in our homes and what one should do in case of an emergency. Staff and parents were able to contribute to the discussions with a question and answer session.
