Emergency services launch online education hub

Essex County Fire and Rescue Service and Essex Police have launched an online education hub to enable them to continue delivering safety lessons to children while schools are closed. The two emergency services work collaboratively to deliver fire safety and crime prevention advice in lessons and assemblies for all school children from reception to sixth form and college.  Education Officers representing both services visit thousands of school children each year in Essex, something that has now stopped since schools have closed.

Essex County Fire and Rescue Service and Essex Police are committed to continuing to make Essex a safe place to live, work and travel, and the online education hub will enable children to continue to learn important safety lessons as part of the national curriculum during the current Covid-19 pandemic.
