Locals receive safety kits

Jozi Safety Kits are handed out to residents.

The City of Johannesburg Emergency Management Services through PIER (section responsible for public education) handed over Jozi Safety Kits to 34 households in and around George Goch informal settlement.

Ward 65 Councillor Lindani Zulu was in attendance and thanked residents who attended the training and emphasised the importance of residents working together with Emergency Services to create safer communities.

According to the Johannesburg Emergency Services’ spokesperson, Robert Mulaudzi, the recipients of the safety kits have already been trained on basic firefighting and basic First Aid with the aim of empowering them to deal with some of emergencies before professionals arrive on the scene.

“This is part of our initiative of building resilient communities – communities capable of dealing with any emergency which might occur in their areas,” he said.

The Jozi Safety Kit consists of the following items:

  •  Parasafe stove (when there is excessive movement, this stove’s flame is cut off and thus fires are prevented.
  •  First Aid kit to treat minor burns.
  •  Solar lantern.
  •  Paraffin container with a safety cap to prevent young children from drinking poisonous paraffin stored in cold drink bottles.
  •  Smoke detector.
  •  Fire retardation spray.
  •  25-litre bucket to store water which can be used to extinguish a fire.
