Community Initiatives

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 Safety Advisors (CFSA's)

The CFSA'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.

Fire Setter Intervention Programme

Our specially trained Fire Setter Officers visit children who play with fire.  The programme is aimed at children up to the age of 18.

Junior Lifeskills

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.


Learn2Live is a true partnership; with representatives from Local Authority Road Safety Teams, Fire & Rescue Service, Police, Paramedics, Family Liaison Officers, Consultants as well as family speakers.


Phoenix is about making a difference. The team works closely with participants to improve communication skills, promote team working skills, raise aspirations and self esteem.

This is achieved by using the skills, discipline, equipment and activities of the Fire and Rescue Service. For more information visit the Phoenix website.

Prince's Trust Team Programme

The Prince's Trust Team Programme is a 13 week personal development programme which aims to increase confidence, motivation and skills and as a result enable young people to move into employment, education, training, volunteering or apprenticeships.

For more details and how to get involved, visit the Phoenix website, which holds information about the Prince's Trust Team Programme.

Prison me! No Way!

Prison Me! No-Way! is a highly acclaimed multi-agency programme which consists of a series of workshops, role plays and drama. 

Turn Around Don't Drown

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.
