Safety resources for children and young people

Access our resources for children and young people to help them learn how to stay safe.

Free resources

Our work involves much more than just fires. We also educate children and young people about water and road safety alongside others so that they can build the skills they need in order to recognise and manage risk in their everyday lives.  

All our resources contain relevant and reliable age-appropriate content which you can use to introduce, consolidate and extend the messaging we deliver through our free educational workshop sessions. Learn more about what we offer and how to book an educational visit.
