Local Community Safety Initiatives

 

Personnel from Dunfermline Fire Station continue to deliver Fire Safety advice to the communities of Dunfermline and West Fife. Primarily this has been through a targeted program of Home Fire Safety Checks, with the emphasis being on those most at risk.

Crews have also been actively involved in our schools education program, carrying out visits to primary 2 and primary 6 children in all primary schools in Dunfermline and West Fife and informing the pupils of the dangers of hoax calls, secondary fires and general home fire safety.

Prior to the school summer holidays as part of an initiative to reduce secondary fires, all primary 7 pupils in the Station area received a visit from crews to educate them in the problems that the increase in fire calls over the summer period can cause the Fire Service.

In the lead up to the Bonfire period, in conjunction with our other Community Safety partners, a coordinated program is in place to target both primary and secondary schools in the hot spot areas where historically we have experienced an increase in the numbers of bonfires and secondary fires. Crews will visit all primary 5-7 and S1-S4 children to educate them in the dangers of fireworks and bonfires. This will be supported by a poster competition in which the children will be encouraged to design a poster to support the Bonfire campaign.

Personnel from Dunfermline have also been involved in a local initiative to reduce the number of road traffic collisions involving young drivers. Groups of young drivers were invited to the station and were given a talk on the dangers of high speed driving and a demonstration on how we carry out casualty extrication from crashed vehicles.
