Fire Crew is a new programme for Safeside at Handsworth in 2014. Available to both Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 3, it is an exciting and practical two hour programme looking at the work of the fire service.
At Key Stage 2, the session includes a fire safety check in our realistic home scenarios, experiencing the fire flashover to see how fast fire can spread, a tour of the fire station incorporating appliance areas, checking an appliance, Fire Cat comms and map, and a computer based car accident exercise.
At Key Stage 3, visitors experience the above plus fire ground training, running out hoses and a casualty search experience. Full details here.
The cost per pupil is £6. If you book a whole day by adding a second programme the cost is only £10.
