Safe Drive Stay Alive, Surrey, is a series of live educational performances featuring a sequence of films and live speakers, which aim to make young people (years 12 and 13) aware of their responsibilities as drivers, and passengers, whilst travelling, and to positively influence their attitudes.
These emotional, engaging and thought provoking performances feature people recounting their stories and the many serious, long term impacts to themselves and all those around them. Each new film features a true story, told by the people directly affected by a road traffic collision. After each film an individual from the emergency services, takes to the stage – a police officer, a paramedic, a firefighter and an A&E doctor or nurse – to speak about their experiences of attending road traffic collisions or treating patients, and how these have affected them professionally and personally.
The raised awareness continues, with volunteer members of the public – mothers, fathers, siblings, young drivers – taking to the stage to give their personal stories about how their lives have been affected by a fatal road traffic collision. Real stories of life, tragic loss and regret create emotional engagement and impress upon the audience that their future really is in their hands.
This initiative is managed by Surrey Fire & Rescue Service.
