Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service - Fire Safety Schools Programme KS2

Project Aim


The aim of the fire safety education program is to highlight and raise awareness of the importance in keeping safe from fire.

 

Our aim and objectives are:


- Create awareness of fire hazards in and around the home.

 

- Provide fire safety information enabling children and young people to prevent, detect and escape from fire.

 

- Empowering young people to resist peer pressure, in relation to fire crimes such as arson and hoax calls


What does the project entail


The lesson structure will engage children through viewing a 2.24 minute Bedroom Fire and interactive group work where children will be given a cad plan of a bungalow and decide on a) where smoke alarms should be fitted and b) how to escape from the house if the smoke alarm actuates. (Safety and Environmental)

 

The group activities prepares the children to consider the importance of discussing with family members a Fire Escape Plan and practising a bedroom routine of closing doors at night, switching off plugs that are not in use and encourage family members to test smoke alarms once a week. (Safety and Environmental)

 

A KS2 workbook will be given to each child as an extracurricular activity which will reinforce the Fire Safety messages provided in the classroom. The workbook has been cross – mapped with the PSE Curriculum and Literacy and Numeracy Framework


What is required from the school?
