Firefighters teach kids to play safe in Edmonton
Firefighters and police spent the day at an Edmonton children’s centre yesterday as part of a safety campaign.
Crews from Edmonton Fire Station and officers from the Jubilee Safer Neighbourhoods Team visited Forest Children’s Centre, in Tramway Avenue, to speak to toddlers and their families about Child Safety Week, which ends on Sunday.
Outreach worker Jessica Waters said: “It went really well and we had 68 families from the neighbourhood come down – 24 of which said they don’t have a smoke alarm fitted, so it was worthwhile.
“We just want to show how important child safety is in the home and teach people what to look out for and what the main dangers are.”
Child Safety Week is run by the Child Accident Prevention Trust and aims to raise awareness of accidents that seriously injure or kill children and how to prevent them.
