We offer a range of educational packages to schoolchildren and young adults regarding road safety these include Road Sense and Wasted Lives.
Road Sense is a new Year 6 Road Safety package which looks at the transition from primary to high school. It helps pupils to consider how they will travel to their new school safely and plan their route. It covers key messages about wearing seatbelts, safe cycling, pedestrian safety and not causing a distraction when travelling in a car.
Wasted lives is aimed at year 11 high school students. It is an award winning young driver education programme, targeting young drivers and their passengers. The session challenges beliefs resulting in safer attitudes towards risk taking behaviours on the roads utilising hard hitting video clips and local examples of road traffic collisions.
To find out more about these packages, please visit the Wasted Lives website or contact Clare Burscough, our Road Safety Co-ordinator on 01772 862545 or by emailing ClareBurscough@lancsfirerescue.org.uk
