Local Community Safety Initiatives

Personnel from Lochgelly Fire station have worked hard to develop engagement with local primary schools through the Lochgelly Garden project. Funded locally, fire crews work with the children planting, growing and harvesting a range of vegetables and floral displays. A novel approach has also been taken this year to delivering the fire safety message in the lead up to the school summer holidays; working within the framework of the Local Area Safety Coordination group, Fire Crews have worked closely with Fife Police and Community Wardens to reduce the number of secondary fires during the summer period.
