More about the animation
The animation, ‘Archie and Woody’s Fire Investigation Adventure’ has been put together by Phoenix Services – part of Cornwall Fire, Rescue and Community Safety (CFRCS) Service, to support the prevention campaign to highlight key safety messages to the public and to encourage families to watch and learn together.
The first animation tells the story of a house fire where dog handler Mark, Archie and Woody put on their fire shoes to investigate and support the Service in understanding the cause of the fire. Archie and Woody will be using all the cuteness at their disposal to get over the message to children and families about what they should do in the event of a fire.
CFRCS Service are one of a handful of services within the UK to employ the services of their own fire investigation dog team. The dogs are used as a tool to search cold, post-fire scenes for the presence of flammable and ignitable liquids that could have been used to start or promote fires deliberately.
