Safety first, Prevention first
Recently, our class carried out a class activity in Wuxi Traffic Safety Education Center， which is also recognized as Wuxi civil defense popular science education and life experience hall.
At the entrance, you can see the gold-plated experience card and the red-lighted slogans for safety. Inside the center, our vision broadened - over our head, there’s a half arc of the blue sky, and many pigeons which symbolizing the peace. On the left wall are portraits of some Chinese chairmen from the founding of the People's Republic of China to the present day -- Mao Zedong, Deng Xiaoping, Jiang Zemin, Hu Jintao, Xi Jinping, and every leader's speech on national defense. On the right wall are pictures of natural disasters.
Part1: Traffic safety knowledge
The guide showed us an automobile analytic diagram and we watched a public service advertisement reminding us to obey the traffic laws and regulations. It’s too late to regret when the danger comes. We also got a try of what it feels like to be drunk in a drunk driving cabin, which is truly disorienting and off-balance -- it’s enough to tell us how dangerous drunk driving can be. Let's raise our awareness of traffic safety.
Part2: Civil defense knowledge
There is a mock bomb shelter, with a popular science video playing next to it -- if one day our land is attacked, we have to take shelter immediately. Video introduces the interior layout of the bomb shelter and its complete facilities. There are other displays showing how we should act in the event of a natural disaster. All these videos help improve our concept of civil defense and establish civil defense awareness.
Part3: The national military
We also watched circular-screen movie in the center. It showed us the majestic-looking military weapons of various countries, including aircraft carriers, warships, aircrafts, missiles, tanks and so on. There were several models of manned spacecraft on the display, which were really cool! These can let us know our country's strong military strength. We feel proud of our country!
This activity is memorable. It taught us to put safety in the first place, prevent in advance, obey the rules, and correctly recognize the role of protection. It also greatly deepened our understanding of our national protective equipment. If each of us ensures our own safety, that is to contribute to the country!
