With a view to instill safety knowledge among students from a very young age, Underwriters Laboratories, together with the Directorate of Fire and Emergency Services (DFES) and the Directorate of Education (DoE), Goa, launched the Safer Schools Safer India (SSSI) program in Goa in 2015. The program was targeted towards primary school students, in grades 1 to 4, and revolved around the character named ‘Bittoo’ who experiences, shares, and teaches children about the various fire safety practices that need to be followed on a day-to-day basis. A training module was also included, for teachers, which consisted of short videos and worksheets on the subject of fire safety. Through this program, 26,879 students and 467 teachers were trained across 334 schools.

The module is now available for download in four languages – English, Hindi, Kannada and Marathi. Click on the icons below to download the Bittoo Module in your preferred language.
