National Schools' Fire Safety Day
Thursday 06 August 2009
Teachers are being urged to participate in the National Schools' Fire Safety Awareness Campaign.
The Fire Fighters Charity and the Communities and Local Government Fire Kills Campaign have joined forces to encourage schools across England to work with their local fire and rescue service, and help launch a National Schools' Fire Safety Day on Wednesday 14 October 2009.
Supported by the DCSF, this year's campaign will focus on 'planning a safe escape' and will be specifically targeted at Key Stage 1 children. The main objective for the Day is for Year 2 children to learn five related key messages, which they can take home and relay to their families.
All teachers wishing to participate in the event can request a free teachers' resource pack which will include classroom activity worksheets, an event poster, a homework sheet and teachers' guidance notes.
The resource pack can be ordered by calling 01202 653 360, or by completing an online request form. Additional materials can also be downloaded from the website, where teachers will be able to discover more about the event.
