Sol in Anguilla presented interactive demonstrations on safety techniques, to the public who attended the 2012 All Hazard Risk Reduction & Safety Fair.  The event was held by The Department of Disaster Management and the Essential Services of the National Disaster Management Committee (NDMC) to provide safety education and enhance awareness on methods of risk reduction.

Country Manager of Sol in Anguilla, Mr Hewlette Gumbs, participated in the event by showcasing the characteristics of Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG) and hosted several interactive sessions for the many young students and adults in attendance. The main focus was on the safe use of petroleum products such as LPG.

The theme of the safety fair was ‘Safer Practices equals Safer Lives’ with the objective to encourage basic safety behaviour and practices in areas such as accident prevention, road safety; the safe use of electrical and other appliances, importance of insurance, natural disaster risks and health and environmental awareness.

Following the event, Ms Pamela Herbert-Daniel, Managing Director of Scotiabank Anguilla, presented Mr Gumbs with a fire extinguisher as a prize awarded for the booth with the most interaction with visitors.
