Education in Schools
The fire authority will conduct periodic inspections of schools requested by OFSTED or by their own fire risk assessment
The Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue Service’s Schools Programme aims to teach children about the dangers of fire, how to escape safely from a fire and the dangers of arson and hoax calls.
By teaching the children these important lessons at an early age, they will become safer adults. It is our aim that children also take the fire safety messages home with them, teaching their parents and carers the basic principles of fire safety.
Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue has two dedicated Education Advocates who visit Year 2 and 6 in primary schools that have been identified as being located in areas of high fire risk. It is anticipated that the intervention work carried out in these schools will reduce the risk of injury and death to children and also the number of incidences in these areas.
Schools identified as being located in areas of medium to low risk of fire incidents can also receive fire safety education from their local stations.
If you have an enquiry about the schools program, please contact the Education Advocates on 01522 580365
We also have a Poster Gallery displaying posters sent in by the children from the schools we have visited. Find out now if your schools posters are being displayed.
