Your Safety

Primary Education

SFRS are passionate about saving lives through education and proudly engage with children and young people within their school or community environment to teach key safety messages. Our Learning Resources section also has a series of presentations and lesson plans which can be delivered by teachers, youth workers and community groups.

Further resources can be found at Go Safe Scotland which forms part of the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service's education programme and supports our commitment to providing fire safety education to all primary school aged children and young people across Scotland.

The creation of Go Safe Scotland followed feedback from teachers who were looking for supporting materials to cover key topics. Curriculum for Excellence standard lessons have been devised by the SFRS which draws on the experience of Education, Police Scotland, Youth work, Health, Housing, Social Work and Fire professionals. Current Go Safe Scotland partners include: Glasgow City Council, Fife Community Safety Partnership, Scottish Fire and Rescue Service, Scottish Water, Fearless.org, NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde, Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents, ScotRail, Police Scotland and Scottish Gas Networks. 

SFRS staff will continue to reinforce learning, and to prioritise areas of need. For example, where issues such as deliberate firesetting are prevalent, we will focus additional youth engagement work to support local areas.For further information contact your local community action team.
