Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service delivers fire safety education in schools which is targeted according to where the education will achieve the most benefit. For those schools we are unable to provide direct input we offer a link to sites that provide Fire Safety education support materials.
Our direct Fire Safety education inputs are provided as follows:
Key stage 1 (year 1 to 2 age 5-7) We offer a 60 minute presentation to schools based on how to plan your escape, stop drop and roll, the role of firefighters, and the importance of smoke alarms
Key stage 2 (year 3 to 6 Age 7-11) This is delivered either through Crucial Crew or a 75 minute presentation to schools to reinforce subjects covered in Key Stage 1 and Hoax and malicious calls
Key Stage 3 (year 7 to 9 Age 11-14) This is delivered through a 90 minute theatre presentation by the ‘Stop Watch theatre company’ on the theme of arson reduction
Key Stage 4 (year 10 to 11 Age 14-16) This is delivered through a hard hitting presentation in schools aimed at promoting safety on the roads for this age group who are the next new drivers on the road.

This very successful event gives children a range of safety information that will often stay with them for the rest of their lives.
