Working with Young People

We regularly work with schools and young people in the community. Find out how we can work together to educate and protect your children by contacting the youth team on the following: youthteam@bedsfire.gov.uk or by calling 01234 845000.

Year 2 Visits

Our firefighters and support staff work in partnership to ensure that all Year Two children in Bedfordshire receive fire safety advice as part of their ‘lifelong learning’ within Key Stages 1 and 2. Year Two visits are incorporated in the Station Plans for each of our 14 stations across Bedfordshire. By teaching children these important messages at an early age, we hope they will gain the skills and knowledge to become safer adults.

Visits are made to schools by Firefighters and our Prevention Team who provide information on Fire safety, Smoke alarms, Matches and lighters, Escape routes and Stop Drop and Roll. We encourage the children to take these fire safety messages home with them, teaching their parents and carers about smoke alarms and fire safety and spreading the word through their communities.

To arrange a school visit please contact your local Community Fire Station.

Fire Cadets
