Packages may be delivered by Fire Fighters from the Education Team or by operational Response Crews and are offered free of charge to our school partners. We may ask that you engage with evaluation activities prior to and or following our engagement with you.

The Education Team are able to support your school in organising multiagency events such as drop-down safety days as we lead on the Nottinghamshire Safety Education Partnership (NSEP).

Please note

Where operational response crews are requested to deliver, we cannot guarantee attendance and or full delivery as the priority has to be given to responding to emergency situations if they arise. When the Education team is requested to deliver, a date and time can be guaranteed.

Suitable access, egress, and hard standing is required on school grounds for the fire appliance.

It may be possible to arrange extra practical content to be delivered outside of the classroom. This should be agreed upon and risk assessed in advance of the visit with the delivery team attending.

Some specialist package delivery will be undertaken solely by the Education Team.

Please let us know in good time ahead of our delivery of any adaptations required to accommodate the needs of your pupils.
