08 May It’s Safety First for Life Skills
Vision 21’s Life Skills project have been busy learning about Safety in the home and the community. Students have been learning about people in the community that can help them, including the Emergency Services.
Firstly the Local Fire Service visited the project and told the trainees about what they do and how to stay safe at home. The Trainees also went on a visit to visit to Ely Fire Station.
Next, they had a visit from Scott Evans the local Community Police Support Officer who came to talk to all students about how the Police can help in an emergency. Students thoroughly enjoyed trying on the uniforms and printing their finger prints!
This was followed by a visit to Llandaff North Train station where the Trainees were met by Kumar Hirani from Cardiff Neighbourhood Policing Team who talked about train safety and the Trainees then were treated to a train ride to Cardiff town centre courtesy of Aviva.
Lastly Barry Coastguards visited the project to talk about the role of the Coast Guard, how students can get help at sea and the beach.
All students, staff and volunteers have thoroughly enjoyed working with the emergency services and learning about staying safe.
