DISASTERS can strike anyone and any time. However, we lack safety awareness in our country.
I have seen fire extinguishers displayed in public buildings but I have never seen the public being taught how to use a fire extinguisher.
We need our rescue department – the Fire Brigade – to conduct regular fire drills to educate citizens.
It is not surprising that most fires cannot be controlled in Zambia and we have seen lives being lost.
