Helping you stay safe, keep healthy and be happy


Learn sparkyAll things aren’t equal when it comes to having an accident or being harmed.

We know from our work trying to keep communities safe from fire that some people are more at risk than others. That’s why we’re working closely with our friends and colleagues in the NHS, the police, councils, housing and lots of other agencies to bring Safety Central to life.

What’s more, Cheshire Fire Authority is funding the running costs of Safety Central enabling us to offer visits for FREE.

We’re delighted to offer four unique programmes:

  • SafetyStars (new window, PDF 3614KB), a brand new programme for Year 1 and 2 children at Key Stage 1, covering fire safety, accidents at home, road and rail safety, healthy eating and five ways to well-being
