Safety tips for Norfolk’s youngsters

Around 1000 school children are to learn vital safety lessons through interactive workshops in Norwich next week.

The Crucial Crew are co-ordinated by Norfolk County Council's fire and rescue service and will use short interactive sessions to teach vital safety tips at the Norfolk Showground in Costessey,

The sessions start on Monday and will use theatre-style roleplay to mock up hazards to which children may be exposed in everyday life.

Year 6 pupils are placed in situations which simulate potential danger, such as a bedroom fire.

Among the issues also being looked at are bullying, electrical safety, drugs, first aid and seaside safety.

Harry Humphrey, cabinet member for community protection, said: 'This is the 32nd Crucial Crew to be held in Norfolk and following this event some 26,600 young people will have attended the events in our county.

'That means thousands of young people have learned simple, but vital, safety messages and we know from experience and feedback that these young people go home and impart what they have learned to their families and friends. So the reach of Crucial Crew goes far and wide.'
