Fire Safety and Football – a Winning Combination

Filed under: Fire Safety,News — Adrian @ 10:24 am

Youngsters in Sunderland were recently honoured for their fire safety knowledge after successfully completing an innovative course which combined fire safety awareness and football training.

The hot shots programme is formed by a partnership with the Fire and Rescue service and Sunderland Association Football Club. It is a five week course where attendees learn how to prevent a fire from starting and what to do in the event of a fire, interspersed with football training.

The 20 members of the Young Asian Voices were presented with their certificates at a special ceremony and were treated to a guided tour of the Stadium of Light.

Community safety office Mehrban Sadiq from Tyne & Wear Fire and Rescue Service organised the event and said We have combined fire safety awareness training with football to make learning more interesting and fun. We hope this will lead to greater understanding of what the Fire and Rescue Service does and an improved awareness of the dangers of fire.
