Our children, our responsibility: RAK launches child safety campaign

Police in the emirate have launched a safety campaign aimed at parents: 'Our children... our responsibility'.

Ras Al Khaimah Police have launched a campaign to raise awareness among parents of the need to keep their children safe at all times.

As part of the "Our children…our responsibility" campaign, brochures containing advice and instructions on how to prevent common accidents have been handed out around the emirate, said Lieutenant Abdullah Ali Shalik, the acting head of community police section.

The brochures highlight the danger of letting children play near water, poisoning by pesticides, falls, incidents involving electricity, gas, bladed instruments, fires, cigarettes, and fireworks.

"Accidents involving children due to parents' neglect must be tackled," said Lt Ali Shalik.

He urged all parents to respond to the campaign and keep their children safe.
