Captain Pham Thi Huong Chi, deputy head of the Hai Phong Fire Police Division 1 said, “The “Fire Safety House” model has contained the following criteria: the house must have at least one escape way; the electrical system must meet the fire protection standards; the arrangement and use of gas or coal, electric cookers must be safe; there must be firefighting equipment in the house; and all family members must have knowledge of fire prevention and fighting.”
During the dissemination courses, participants were taught basic knowledge of fire safety in designing, constructing and renovating houses and production and business.
Since the model was popularized on a large scale, local women union chapters’ members become more aware of fire prevention and fighting, thus contributing to preventing fire and explosion, maintaining peace for each household, each street.
After 2 years of implementation, the model has gained practical results and recognized by the Ministry of Public Security as 1 of the 20 “outstanding projects and works of the public security women in the period 2012-2017.”
