Specialists of the State Emergency Service discussed with the team of the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) in Ukraine the joint work on informing and educating citizens about mine safety rules.

According to Ukrinform, the State Emergency Service reports this in Facebook.

“Today, the State Emergency Service and UNICEF are conducting a joint campaign and developing products that help people, especially the younger generation, understand the danger from explosive objects, learn to recognize them and act correctly,” the message says.

It is noted that such work is carried out in the media, social networks, outdoor advertising objects and directly with children during joint actions.

“The result of such work should be the reduction of cases of injury to people from ammunition and the prevention of other emergencies. Through children, we must teach adults the rules of safety,” he said.

In turn, the head of the UNICEF behavioral change projects, Tatyana Kazanzhi, presented new ideas for further joint work. In particular, this is the conduct by rescuers of classes with children in “Children’s Points”, camps where specialists of the Rescue Service can directly teach young people safety rules and answer questions.
