Request a school visit

We really love visiting schools across South Yorkshire to deliver fire safety education to children.
We currently offer the following carefully developed education package to primary schools (including special schools) in our area:

Play It Safe

Year 3 (or equivalent if you are a Special School):

This is an animation programme designed to help deliver safety messages to young children. In the DVD film, Bleeper (a smoke alarm) and his best friend, Battery, help young children learn about fire safety. The animation includes safety messages on smoke alarms, fire safety in the home, escape plans, fire drills, hazards in the home, bonfire safety and road safety. It also includes wellbeing messages relating to healthy eating and the benefits of regular exercise.

Great Fire of London & People Who Help Us

Foundation & Key Stage 1

In partnership with us the National Emergency Services Museum’s learning and discovery team offer fire safety workshops at the museum, as well as outreach visits based on The Great Fire of London and People Who Help Us. These are tailored to Foundation and Key Stage One students. For more information on educational day visits to the museum call 0114 249 1999, email  or click here.

How to book a school visit

If your school would like to receive this educational package, please contact our community safety team.

We’re sorry that we’re not able to visit any other year groups (this includes nurseries and children’s centres) to deliver this package, as we only have a limited number of teams available to do this work.

For more information or to request a booking form, please contact 0114 253 2499 or

Please note we need at least two weeks notice for all bookings.
