Family Tours At The Safety Centre

Just like our school visits, you will be guided around each of our safety scenarios by one of our friendly volunteer guides. You will learn about the risks and potential dangers we face in every day life and the things you can do to keep yourself and your friends, family and community safe.

From understanding the importance of smoke detectors and keeping your personal information safe to learning how to cross the road safely and how fast a train can travel, there will be lots for you to discover.

Children will also get the incredible opportunity to make a practise 999. During this call they will need to remember what emergency service their require, where the accident has taken place and what has happened. An amazing skill that could save a life in a real emergency.

Is there any better place to visit during half term?
