Crucial Crew is a multi-agency event organised through schools, by the police and supported by the fire service.

They aim to raise awareness of safety issues to school children in Year 6 (aged 10-11).

The event takes the form of a range of 20-minute interactive scenarios which cover a wide range of topics, each educating the students in a specific risk.

Our scenario includes the children having ‘hands on’ experience in what to do if they discover a fire in the home and how to make an emergency call. They will identify risks set up in the scenario and learn how to make their homes safer.

Other scenarios include:

  • Water Safety
  • Heathy Child Team
  • Internet Safety
  • IDAS (Independent Domestic Abuse Services)
  • Drugs and Alcohol Awareness
  • Anti-social Behaviour

Crucial Crew runs in various locations across the county and each school will receive an invite from the police asking if they wish to book onto one of the day sessions.

The online Crucial Crew Game on the link below sets up various scenarios for children. The online game has been designed to allow children to put all their skills into practice, as they navigate through several settings and challenging scenarios ranging from water rescues to online safety and make key choices on how to respond in emergency situations.
