Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service
Be aware of potential risks and how to avoid them
We’ve temporarily closed our 2020 Norfolk Crucial Crew events but we won’t let a pandemic stop us from keeping everyone safe at home! Crucial Crew has worked with thousands of year 6 students each year but for those of you who might miss out on that this year, welcome to virtual Crucial Crew!
Crucial Crew is a multi-agency project, led by Norfolk Fire & Rescue Service, engaging with year 6 students across the county delivering safety messages in a fun and interactive way through hazards presented in a safe environment, such as a simulated bedroom fire and rescue.
Our aim is to help children stay safe and learn valuable life skills. Young people are one of our best communication tools for spreading safety messages, sharing them with family, friends, carers, and the wider community, taking forward these life skills into the future.
There are resources from lots of different services and organisations to help us stay safe in many different places and situations in day to day life. We hope you enjoy virtual Crucial Crew and we look forward to welcoming our year 6 students back soon.
999 is the UK’s emergency number, meaning you can contact the right people to help you in every emergency situation. If you call 999, you can speak to the Ambulance Service, Fire and Rescue, Police and the Coastguard. The operator will ask what your emergency is and help the services respond in the best way.
You should only call 999 in an emergency. Our emergency services work hard to help people who are facing very difficult circumstances, so you should only call when there is a real emergency and you or someone you know needs help.
