The delivery of “Heat of the Moment” usually focuses on schools where
- a request has been made for input by a school
- there are issues or increased incidents of anti-social behaviour, deliberate fire-setting or hoax calls in the area that have been identified by the Fire and Rescue Service.
However as well as schools, who have either requested the input or been identified as ones that might benefit from the delivery, the programme is also available to any other organisation that works with young people where it felt it would be beneficial.
“Heat of the Moment” sessions are normally delivered by Community Fire Safety Practitioners who work in the schools’ geographical area to whole classes from either Y7 or Year 8, however this is negotiable. It will depend largely on how the aims and objectives of the session fit into the curriculum of the school’s year groups – particularly those of PSHE and Citizenship.
“Heat of the Moment” is available to all children of secondary school age in the Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service area. This includes the Local Authorities of Lancashire, Blackburn with Darwen and Blackpool.
Curriculum and Home Links
“Heat of the Moment” contributes to the overall delivery of a planned school Safety Education programme in several ways in particular within the curriculum areas of Citizenship and PSHE as well as Literacy and Drama. By raising the awareness in the pupils of the potential consequences of anti-social behaviour linked to hoax calls and arson/deliberate fire setting, the session and any follow up activities both promote safety conscious behaviours in young people and also enable them to consider the wider impact such negative behaviour and actions can have on families and the community as a whole.
A letter is made available for the pupils to take home after the session. The letter explains to parents/carers about the session and asks for their support in terms of reinforcing the messages that were stressed.
