Sharjah hosts workshop on public safety rules

HSEThe Sharjah Prevention and Safety Authority has continued a “Prevention and Safety with Salama and Hamoud” workshop to enlighten children on public safety rules

The function, which was held in collaboration with the Sharjah Children's Centres of the “Rubu' Qarn Foundation' for Creating Leaders and Innovators,” saw around 50 children participate from the Children Centres in Helwan area.

The authority used cartoon characters, ‘Salama and Hamoud’ in order to develop children’s awareness on the proper prevention techniques.

Sheikh Saif Mohammed Al Qasimi, director of the Prevention and Safety Authority, said, “The cartoon characters, favoured by children, have been used in talking to them in an easy and understandable language that help efficiently enlighten them about such security and safety rules. They also spread preventive culture and put a smile on the children’s faces.”

He further added that the characters have been well received by different segments of the society of various ages.

Sheikha Al Ali, an event executive with the Sharjah Prevention and Safety Authority, said, “The workshop is meant to enlighten Sharjah children on security and safety rules at home to curb accidents and dangers they may encounter.”

The two characters discuss a variety of preventive information and guidelines, sending important awareness messages to children.

The cartoon characters used in conveying these messages help affirm and promote safety and prevention culture among children.
