In 2023, our esteemed organization celebrated its Silver Jubilee, a testament to our longstanding commitment to the realm of safety and security. As we ushered in this monumental milestone, we embarked on several initiatives that underscore our dedication to recognizing and celebrating the heroes of safety and fire.
A crowning achievement of the year was the inception of the “Safe India Hero Plus” Awards. This platform stands as a heartfelt tribute, honoring the unparalleled bravery of firefighters and rescue personnel. Their selfless acts serve as a beacon of hope and underline their indispensable role in safeguarding our communities.
In tandem with these awards, we unveiled the “Bharat Safety Yatra.” This initiative, encompassing a comprehensive safety seminar and regional award ceremony, has been meticulously crafted to laud the stalwarts of industrial safety, including the valiant Fire & Rescue teams. We are eagerly gearing up for the Yatra’s maiden journey in January 2024, commencing with editions in Kolhapur, Aurangabad, and Nashik, and culminating with a grand event in Pune on 29th January. With each edition, we envision the Yatra to amplify its impact, setting the stage for future endeavors.
Furthermore, the Yatra laid the groundwork for the illustrious “Safe-Tech Awards Grand Show” at the iconic Taj Mahal Mumbai, a testament to our commitment to upholding grandeur and excellence in safety acknowledgment.
As we gaze into 2024, our aspirations remain unwavering. With plans to launch the World of Safety Expo at the Bombay Exhibition Center in February, preceded by the Bharat Safety Yatra across five cities, we are poised to set new benchmarks in safety advocacy and recognition.
In closing, I extend my heartfelt gratitude to our patrons and partners. Your unwavering support propels us forward, ensuring that Fire & Safety Magazines remains a beacon of knowledge and excellence in the safety domain. As we navigate the promising horizons of 2024, I remain confident in our collective ability to shape a safer, more secure future for all.
