CSI at Safeside

body: 
CSI – Crime Scene Investigators is a programme for young people ages from 11 – 25 years old.
The programme involves classroom activity as well as operational team work. The session includes a fatal fire report and the young people using problem solving skills to find out why the person acted in the manner in which they did. They will be working in teams to understand the importance of fire safety in the home.
 
The session continues into the operational field of search and rescue. This will provide an experiential learning experience of how our firefighters search a building and rescue our training aid. They will then understand the importance of communicating as a team.  The young people will go onto produce a plan of the building and show where they found the training aid, but this is all carried out in the dark.
 
The session runs for 2.5 hours £6 per session per person or two sessions can be booked for £10 per person; this would be a whole day session with a maximum number pf 14.
 
Further information and a booking form can be found here.

Fire Call

Now available at Handsworth is Fire Call - Hoax Call, a programme for young people ages from 11 – 16 years olds. In special circumstances this programme can be delivered to 16+.

The programme involves classroom activity as well as team activities. The session includes understanding fire safety, communication skills, team work skills, actions and consequences. The young people will be developing a community safety campaign, which they can then feed back into their educational settings. Don’t be surprised when a fire call is received and they have to work as a team, using fire service equipment specially for young people to carry out a drill. Is the drill as it seems or could it be a hoax call?

The session runs for 2.5 hours and costs £6 per session per person.  The maximum number we can currently cater for is 14.
