Community Initiatives

Cornwall Fire, Rescue and Community Safety 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 and road 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 Safety Award

The Community Safety Award is a national award which was launched in response to significant flooding in Cornwall in recent years.

The award aims to educate and train young people to assist before, during and after a crisis and was developed to give young people in the UK an opportunity to learn what to do in an emergency situation, such as severe weather, a pandemic or long term powercut.

elfs - early learning fire safety

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.

Prince's Trust

The Phoenix Services team works closely with Prince's Trust participants to improve communication skills, promote team working skills, raise aspirations and self esteem. The team also offer a range of other training including fire awareness, fire warden and first aid training.
