United Arab Emirates – Ministry of Education

The UAE was very keen to raise the level of safety awareness of the children of the UAE given the diversity of its population. There are certain restraints on entering schools and interacting directly with Children without the approval of the Ministry of Education. So UL Middle East signed a MOU with the Ministry of Education and the Interior to promote the program in all public schools across the Emirates! UL Middle East Safety Smart Ambassadors train the teachers through the “Train the Trainer” model and equips them with the program resources and materials to have them take the safety messages into the classrooms. The teachers became a very important stakeholder group / key influencers to speak to children directly. The Safety Smart/Wild About Safety materials give them the chance to connect with the children of their communities, educate them in fire safety and prevention, and ultimately empower them to become safe citizens of their communities.
