eastbourne buzz news - Safety In Action Eastbourne

Working in partnership with other agencies, Eastbourne Police recently provided active support for Safety in Action week involving more than 800 pupils from schools across the town.

10-year-olds were encouraged to take part in several scenarios aimed at helping them gain and develop new skills as they become more independent.

These included personal safety, how to report a fire, dealing with a casualty and general awareness of dangers they might face as they grow up.

Schools liaison officer, PC Ted Anderson, said, "The week provided an opportunity for Year 6 pupils to learn new and vital skills to keep them and their friends safe.

"It was a real pleasure to see all the agencies coming together to offer their expertise, and it was clear the students enjoyed learning these new skills that hopefully they will remember for a long time after the event."

Co-ordinated by East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service, Safety in Action week also involved police, ambulance, Eastbourne volunteer lifeguards, Southern Rail, East Sussex County Council and UK Power Networks.
