Safe+Sound is a project set up to educate people in our communities about safety in a fun and interactive way.
During the current situation we will be offering a virtual Safe+Sound, a weekly programme from the Safe+Sound team and partners.
Topics will include:
You can watch Safe+Sound live every Wednesday at 10am during term time, or view past editions of the show at any time on demand, by visiting the Learn Live platform.
Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service have been successfully broadcasting a weekly Safe+Sound programme for Key Stage 2 children since May 2020, with occasional programmes aimed at different age groups. Safe+Sound is a programme of safety, wellbeing and life-skills messages created by our specialist partners then compiled by the fire service to produce a programme that is transmitted on the Learn Live channel during term time.
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.
