Fire safety activities and resources for children and young people

Are you are a teacher, home-educating or have a child that is fascinated with the emergency services? If so, we have lots of activities and resources that share key fire safety messages and support the National Curriculum in a fun, engaging and age-appropriate way.

Try our activities and join our crew!

Our crews are always learning, training and practising their skills. In every fire engine crew there are two Firefighters, a Crew Commander and a Watch Commander. These jobs all have different roles and responsibilities and they each wear different colour helmets so that it is easy to see what job they do.

Which member of our crew are you today?

We would love to see the results of your hard work. Email your pictures to the Education Officers at
