Virtual Safe+Sound can be accessed on Learn Live every Wednesday at 10am.
Safe+Sound is a project set up by Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service with the aim of supporting communities to make informed and positive lifestyle choices, improving their health, safety and wellbeing. The project runs a variety of interactive and practical workshops for children, young people and over 60s delivered by multiple partners and agencies.
Support topics include:
The Safe+Sound team now have state-of-the-art interactive mobile pods to deliver its education programmes. These pods allow for an immersive learning environment which will allow the team and partners to teach various topics including fire safety in the home, road safety, water safety, emotional wellbeing, and CPR amongst other things in an interactive way. Various scenarios are projected onto three walls of the pod producing a 270 degree view of the scene for the student. The software allows participants to answer questions and access more information by swiping sensors on the walls. The use of the pods adds an interactive element to Safe+Sound events to maximise learning outcomes. Each pod folds away to make transportation easier and there are two different sizes to accommodate either a large or a small audience.
Please note as a precaution, we have taken the decision to cancel upcoming school visits to our Safe+Sound pods in view of the government’s latest advice around coronavirus.
