This week, primary and secondary schools across the country ushered in the new spring semester of 2024.

In the past few days, fire departments from all over the country have entered schools to teach children the first lesson in fire safety.

  In a middle school in Ma'anshan, Anhui, an emergency evacuation drill simulating a fire scene was held on the campus.

More than 700 teachers and students quickly evacuated from the classroom to safe areas according to evacuation routes.

Chen Zihan, a student in Grade 18 of Hongxing Middle School in Ma'anshan City, Anhui Province:

I learned how to escape correctly, how to use fire extinguishers correctly, and also visited and experienced various firefighting equipment.

In the future, I will also apply the fire protection knowledge I learned today into daily life practice.

  In order to enhance the safety awareness of students, firefighters in Kaifeng, Henan Province started with hidden dangers that are easily overlooked by everyone. Through case explanations and experimental demonstrations, students can more intuitively understand the fire escape methods and fire alarm precautions.

  Fire departments in Binzhou, Shandong, Nanning, Guangxi and other places drove fire trucks to the playground to explain fire safety knowledge to teachers and students through small fire classes, interactive Q&A, on-site painting, etc., to improve everyone's self-prevention and self-rescue abilities.

Mobilized by the firefighters, the children actively answered the questions and the atmosphere was lively.

Zhu Lisi, fire supervisor of the Nanning Fire Rescue Detachment in Guangxi:

I hope that by educating a child and motivating a family, we can influence the entire society to pay attention to fire safety.

  In addition, local fire departments have also cooperated with local education departments to carry out safety hazard inspections in universities, middle schools and primary schools under their jurisdiction, strengthened civil, technical and physical defense measures for campus safety, refined emergency response plans, and encouraged teachers and students to pay attention to them in daily study and life. Prevent hidden dangers and report problems to the school and fire department in a timely manner.
