Safety In Action

‘Safety in Action’ events encourage children to recognise hazards and take action to keep themselves and others safe.

This project is coordinated by East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service, working with other emergency services and other agencies. 

The agencies create simulated scenarios to allow children to think about safe responses to a variety of different situations. 

The project is aimed at year 6 children (age 10 and 11 years) – before they make the step to secondary school and greater independence. 

We invite all primary, independent and special need, and home educated children to attend these events in Hastings, Rother, Lewes, Wealden, Eastbourne, Brighton and Hove.   There is no charge for attending the event. Nearly 6000 children attend each year. Scenarios included fire safety, road safety, water safety, first aid, railway, internet safety and electrical safety.
