Secondary schools

Reducing fire and road deaths and injuries is more than just providing an emergency response service.

It's about educating others, so we can prevent behaviours that can cause these incidents to happen in the first place.

Our presentations for Key Stage 3 and 4 students aim to give pupils the knowledge and understanding to help them make the right choices to keep themselves and others safe. We make them aware of how their decisions can affect not only themselves but others too.
