Fire Extinguishers and Fire Training

Fire extinguisher campaign with Colin demonstrating his technique

Fire extinguishers and other fire fighting equipment and training is something Watoto Kicheko desperately needs. We have ordered supplies and training from the Arusha fire service and the process will be completed later this month. All 25 staff will be trained, along with the two directors. We can’t take any chances!

The cost of four powder fire extinguishers, one CO2 fire extinguisher, training for the group and a small amount of money to compensate staff for coming to work on their day off comes to about $400, with most of that money being for the fire extinguishers. We also have smoke alarms and a fire blanket, which were donated a few months ago, just waiting for the training!

Fire Extinguishers Via PayPal

We need to raise $400 dollars as soon as possible; we already purchased the fire extinguishers and booked the training. If you would like to contribute you could either send money to our PayPal account, using the ‘Donate’ icon below…
