Children from over a dozen Fenland schools put safety first at workshops
Hundreds of primary school children have learnt vital safety skills as part of a series of interactive workshops held at Wisbech Fire Station.
Pupils from 16 schools in and around Wisbech took part in the Safety Zone last week (24 to 28 June) which teaches children how to stay safe at home and in the community.
This year's lessons included what to do if there is a fire in your home, the best ways to help someone struggling in water, staying safe in cars, coping with bullying and how to identify and report anti-social behaviour.
PCSO Dave Russ, who delivered a session on anti-social behaviour, said: "The Safety Zone events continue to be huge success.
"The workshops offer valuable life skills to our young people in a fun and interactive way, helping them to protect themselves and their families too."

It is organised by Fenland District Council and Cambridgeshire County Council with help from Cambridgeshire Constabulary, Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service and Wood Green Animal Shelter.
