EQUATE Group partners with Kuwait Fire Force on new home safety campaign

Initiative raises awareness of fire hazard safety to keep Kuwait homes safe

KUWAIT, March 21, 2022 — As part of its commitment to the health, safety and wellbeing of the communities in which it operates, EQUATE Group’s decade-long support of the Kuwait Fire Force (KFF) continues with its latest home safety awareness campaign this month.  

The initiative runs from 16th – 31st March 2022, and includes information stands in The Avenues Mall and the University of Kuwait to increase awareness and understanding of potential fire hazards in the home, and how to ensure safety measures are followed.

EQUATE’s sponsorship includes participation by its Emergency Response Team (ERT) responsible for health and safety at the global petrochemical company, who will be present on the stands to share information and actively support KFF teams. The organization has also donated vital safety equipment, such as fire extinguishers, fire blankets and smoke detectors, for distribution on the stands.    

“Kuwait’s Fire Force provides a critical service in keeping both community and industry safe in our homes and work environments, and EQUATE is proud to have been helping to promote its safety initiatives for more than 10 years,” said Nawaf Al-Khaldi, EQUATE Vice President. 

“We hope that this new campaign will help our community to become more aware of potential hazards in the home, learn what measures should be taken to prevent accidents from happening, and what to do should a situation occur,” he added.

The KFF education booths will be located in the Phase II at The Avenues Mall from 16th – 23rd March, and in Kuwait University from 28th – 31st March.
