The cost of Fire Loss globally is becoming increasingly alarming, both in terms of property, death and injuries, the consequence of these fires are not only adding to health related problems but a threat to global campaign to reduce poverty and achieve the set target of the  Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

Ironically, in spite of this worst scenario that Fire Disasters is causing world over, the United Nations system is yet to consider Fire Safety/protection as an issue to be adopted in United Nations charters, agenda and protocols. To me is a serious  gap that I identified as a problem considering the long  history of fire disasters across the world.

For example,  UN has adopted a project on road crashes.  Today the official symbol for the United Nations' Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011-2020, which aims to reduce road deaths and injuries across the world  is being mark annually. What about "fire safety"

It is in-line with this and many other reasons that our NGO, Fire Disaster Prevention and Safety Awareness Association is calling on United Nations to adopt a day as WORLD FIRE SAFETY DAY.

This proposal if achieved  is aimed at  integrating  fire safety issues into the United Nations agenda and to promote fire safety globally as well as add valve to fire safety, at long run we can use the platform to create Global Fire Safety FUND to support fire activities/victims world over among several benefits www.firedisasterprevention.net

The proposal on World Fire Safety Day has been forwarded to Permanent Representatives of Nigeria to the United Nations Prof. Joy Ogwu by Nigeria Ministry Foreign Affairs/Interior   based on my over 10 years work on fire safety, research and activities as a non-profit advocate on fire safety.  

Expect your response
