Fire and Road Safety

Cornwall Fire, Rescue and Community Safety (CFRCS) Service aim to reduce the number of preventable fires, fire and road related deaths and injuries in and outside the home in line with national targets, by promoting a greater awareness and improving attitudes towards community safety.

Within the CFRCS Service fire and road safety team, there are advisor's (FRSA) who deliver fire and road safety messages to our communities throughout Cornwall and carry out visits to secondary schools delivering fire and road safety educational programs. The FRSA's educate young people in relation to both fire and road safety. This helps to insure their future independence is one in which they can make educated choices, allowing them to develop and improve their skills. This helps to keep them safe but also their families too. With this knowledge young people can help towards reducing the number of fires and road related casualties, as a result contributes to working together to make Cornwall safer.

The FRSA's are also dementia friends and visit community groups, memory cafes, age uk groups, promoting home fire safety and safer travel. It is important that they reach all communities in all areas of Cornwall, to promote both fire and road safety messages. They therefore attend flu clinics, doctors surgeries, food banks etc as well as undertake home fire safety checks where they install smoke alarms and give advise on home fire safety.
