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.
