Immersive, realistic, stimulating…a place like no other

Explore sparkyWe’ve taken a huge amount of care to ensure Safety Central blends into its surroundings while at the same time being a stimulating and exciting place to visit. And we’re really proud of how it’s shaped up.

Our centre houses:

  • a bright and colourful welcome area that also serves as a large meeting, activity and dining space, with views into our firefighters’ training ground

  • an immersive 270o cinema room where tours of the centre begin

  • Safer Choices - a series of immersive scenarios encouraging people to think about the impact of their decisions including a police custody suite and cell, courtroom, convenience store and a space for learning about online safety and healthy lifestyles

  • Safe as Houses - a full-sized three-bedroom family home, shed and garden all rigged to not only demonstrate the most common causes of accidents, but also technologies to help prevent injury and promote independence

  • Streetsafe - a dramatic urban environment complete with a road, bridge, toucan crossing, cycle path, railway station, park, canalside, alleyway, building site and substation

  • Ruralrisk - recreating Cheshire’s great outdoors...indoors, this zone highlights hidden dangers in the open countryside, forest and lakes, on farms and on rural roads.

If you would like an informal tour of our centre before booking a visit for your school or community group, we’d love to hear from you. Requests can usually be accommodated between 3pm and 4pm on most weekdays.
