Safety in Action event to be broadcast live this Friday

Sussex Police will be broadcasting a live video stream of ‘Safety in Action’ from Newhaven Fort this Friday, 23 May from 9.45am until midday.

Safety in Action is a week long event jointly organised by Lewes District Council and Sussex Police and aims to give 11 year old children basic skills and knowledge to help keep them safe. During the week around 820 children attend from 25 primary schools from across Lewes District.

The live video stream will follow a team of year 6 pupils as they make their way around 10 different action stations, run by emergency services, volunteers, the local authority and power and transport companies. Teams are given a score based on what they have learned from the scenario and their team work, with a winning school awarded a trophy and prize money donated by Seaford Rotary Club at the end of the week. The scenarios are designed to be practical, hands on, fun and memorable.

Lewes District’s Schools Liaison Officer, PC Carolyn Ross, said: “Safety in Action is a fantastic and important community safety event which helps the police and other services establish relationships with local children and teach them useful skills and knowledge. I am so pleased we are able to highlight it by streaming the activities live this Friday.

“The aim of our live broadcast is to show the partnership work of the services and volunteers involved and to give all an insight into the week’s activities and the important knowledge children gain from partaking in these scenarios.”

The live broadcast will shown on the Sussex Police website starting approximately 9.45am and will switch off at the end of the morning session around midday. If you are unable to watch the broadcast live you will be able to catch up at a later date.
