Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue Service are proud to introduce our Schools' Safety Challenge website, which is available to all primary, infant and junior schools across the County. The Electrical Safety Council sponsored the Schools' Safety Challenge.
The website is aimed at (but not limited to) children in Year 4.
What does the website provide?
Our children can learn more about how to stay safe with interactive content that can be used in classrooms.
- They will be able to take part in educational quizzes and activities covering a range of messages including fire safety, water safety, road safety, personal safety, home safety and electrical safety.
- Lesson plans for teachers to support the use of the website.
- A home fire safety check list designed for children to take home and, along with their families, identify any potential risks in the home.
There will be photos and information about our fire stations, fire engines, fire kit and Millie the fire dog. This will introduce children to Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue Service, where they can learn more about their local fire station and see what their local fire fighters do to keep their community safe.
Countywide Schools' Safety Challenge 2013
The fire and rescue service is also planning a countywide Schools' Safety Challenge during 2013 where children in schools across Northamptonshire will compete to test their safety knowledge.
