From kitchen fires to downed power lines, community members learned essential safety skills at a Sacramento City College and Sacramento Voices Community Forum organized by Voices correspondent Marianna Sousa, with assistance from correspondent Kalaisha Totty.
The highly successful event was held Jan. 28 at the SCC Student Center.
Sacramento City Fire safety officers described what happens when an electrical fire hides within walls before exploding to the surface, doubling in size each minute. Campus police explained their duties, and representatives of the disabled community described frustration over not having clear instructions and options during emergencies.
Other presentations included water safety and life-saving practices, such as CPR.
