Tata Power subsidiary CGPL organises fire and safety awareness session for students in Mandvi, Gujarat

Raised awareness among 513 students, 30 teachers and 5 schools

Mundra and Ahmedabad: Tata Power, India’s largest integrated power utility, has always considered the safety of its employees, consumers and communities as its core priority. It has led the way in promoting safety measures in its operational areas as well as across all its business processes. As part of the 10th Tata Volunteering Week, CGPL, a fully owned subsidiary of Tata Power, organised a fire and safety awareness session with high school students in Mandvi.

With an aim to reduce fire accidents among children, CGPL’s safety department volunteers organised training sessions for over 513 students and 30 teachers of Nana Bhadiya Primary School, Gundiyali Primary School, Maska Higher Secondary School, Kasturba Gandhi Balika Vidyalaya, and Deshalpar and Faradi High School. The sessions focused on various measures that should be adopted for prevention of fire, and to enhance its impact students were also given practical training of handling fire prevention equipment.

Talking about the initiative, Ashok Sethi, COO and executive director, Tata Power, said, “Well-being of our community has always been at the heart of CGPL’s operations. By organising fire safety awareness sessions as part of the 10th Tata Volunteering Week, we aim to create a safe environment for our community members. We would like to thank the school authorities for extending their support for the smooth execution of the session. Their appreciation of our efforts only makes us strive harder to practice this philosophy in all areas of our operations.”

Tata Power aims to continue raising awareness on safety measures to create a safe and habitable environment for all the community members living in its outreach areas.
