You can help to stop it happening to the children and young people in your group. We need your help to deliver effective safety education to the children and young people of Dorset and will happily arrange a visit by or to DFRS to help pass on the important safety messages. We are keen to fully support children and young people with their safety education.
We have five safety aims which we cover in our education from birth to 18 years
As the children progress the complexity of our messages develop and the messages are delivered in different ways. We encourage you to contact us to discuss which options are best for you. We also understand that you will have your own learning outcomes. Our visits can be adapted to cover any subjects you wish, provided we are able to deliver our safety messages. Please indicate on your booking form any topics you are focusing on.
In order to do this we have created safety education resources and sessions to be delivered to all ages, abilities and circumstances.
All resources and sessions have been developed by a qualified teacher and in conjunction with group leaders. All sessions will be delivered by trained and experienced Dorset Fire & Rescue Service staff. Sessions will be tailor made and adapted to your requirements. Please follow the link for your age group to see what we can offer you.
