Schools and education

The safety of children and young people in our community is important to us. The work we do with schools and education providers helps children and young people to understand how to prevent a fire and how to act if there is a fire. It is also a vital step towards reducing the risk of fire.

We have an education programme which runs throughout the year. We visit over 700 schools and about 80,000 pupils to:

  • deliver key fire safety and prevention messages
  • raise awareness of hazards at home and outdoors and;
  • show children and young people how they can keep themselves and others safe.

Should you have any queries please email the Schools and Education Team at
