Organized a Fire & Safety Camp on 29-1-2014 . Dr.P.Lawrence Principal Podhigai College of Engineering & Technology initiated the event.Mr.K.Venkatesan Address the Students gathering.Fire is known to mankind from the days of inception of life on the surface of earth. As per our Hindu mythology fire is one of five basic natural elements (Fire, Space, Earth Water and Air) responsible for the existence and identification of living beings.
If the fire is removed from these activities, everything will come to standstill. If proper attention and care is not exercised, then the fire becomes our vicious enemy. Every day, we witness front page news of fire accidents of difference magnitudes in the news papers which is self explanatory story of our ignorance and callousness attitude towards fire prevention and safety education.
