on travel technology …and everything else
The Kuwait Fire Service has put up a stand at the Avenues Mall opposite the food court. They have some of their smaller vehicles on display as well as a lot of the equipment they use. The blown gas tank and burnt desktop caught my attention. Lots of informational handouts available too mostly on using fire extinguishers.
For kids they have some cardboard firemen with faces cut out (there were quite a few tiny-tots waiting for a pic) and a ton of coloring books.
It’s a nice little exhibit but there was just 1 guy managing the whole setup. Maybe the rest were out for lunch at that time. Having more reading material in English might help the rather large non-Arabic speaking/reading crowds.
