Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service recognises its responsibility in contributing towards working together to make Cornwall safer. We constantly develop strategies to provide fire safety messages throughout life.
In partnership with other Council departments and services, we support those in need from the communities we serve. We contribute directly towards Every Child Matters through educational and intervention packages that meet the needs of pre-school through to university students.
We are committed to educating the community, children and young people in terms of fire safety, but also address issues such as anti social behaviour, which has an impact on community safety.
We deliver our work through an education agenda that includes the following schemes and projects below:
Community Fire and Road Safety Advisors (CFRSA's)
The CFRSA's have been visiting schools in Cornwall since 2000 to give information and advice to children on the danger of fire in a fun but informative way.

Our specially trained Fire Setter Officers visit children who play with fire. The programme is aimed at children up to the age of 18.
Cornwall Junior Lifeskills events are interactive ways of delivering personal and safety education messages to Year 5 children (9-10 year olds), and seek to encourage risk awareness and good citizenship through active participation in a range of scenarios.

Every year hundreds of drivers get caught out driving through flooded roads or at river crossings. The Turn Around Don't Drown is an initiative set up by Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service to raise awareness of the dangers and risks.
