Craven Crucial Crew has been running for 18 years, inviting young people to attend ‘hands on’ safety events, giving them the chance to experience potentially dangerous situations in a safe and supervised environment.
Over the last two weeks, 570 Year 6 students from schools in the Craven area attended daily scenarios, learning about water safety, the consequences of crime and anti-social behaviour, fire safety, first aid, railway safety, safety in the countryside, advice about drugs, internet safety and more.
The organisations that contributed to Crucial Crew in Craven include:
North Yorkshire Police; North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service; Yorkshire Ambulance Service; Craven District Council; North Yorkshire County Council; IDAS, the domestic abuse charity; The Children’s Society Hand in Hand project; Northern Gas Networks; Northern Electric; Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority and Northern Rail.
PC Dave Ridler, of Craven Police, said: “Crucial Crew gives young people an entertaining and informative day learning about how they can keep themselves safe, help others, and help make their local communities a safer place in which to live. It’s a great day out – fun, but with an important message – and I’m sure it’s one they’ll remember for the rest of their lives.” To find out more email [email protected]
