Schools and community groups
Are you a teacher, youth worker or do you run a local community group?
If so, you can help the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service to reduce the risk of injury to our children and young people by raising their awareness of the serious dangers associated with fireworks and bonfires.
You can find a powerpoint presentation and lesson plan designed for young people from P6 to S1. The presentation should not be delivered to pupils out with this age range.
Further fire safety information and teaching resources for young people is available from
Go Safe Scotland.
UK Government website also provides a range of resources to support you to deliver key safety messages.
For further information please contact your
local fire station.
The PowerPoint file - 8MB.
Additional school and
community group presentations are also available.
In addition to our presentation and lesson plan, the following films and
guidance document from Merseyside Fire & Rescue Service, Merseyside Police and North West Ambulance Service (NHS Trust) may provide a useful extra resource. The ‘Junior’ film may be utilised for P6 to P7 Primary pupils and should not be delivered to pupils out with this age range.
The ‘Senior’ film is intended for S1 to S6 Secondary pupils. The video is a drama based on actual incidents that have occurred in Merseyside over the Bonfire Period. The aim is to demonstrate numerous dangers during this period and to promote areas of concern. It also covers key safety messages and areas of best practice.
