Safe Angus event

PUPILS from Lochside Primary School will take part in this year’s Safe Angus event at the Jock Neish Centre, Tannadice on Wednesday.

The primary six youngsters will learn practical ways to deal with everyday dangers at the Safe Angus event, which is supported by Angus Council, Tayside Police, Tayside Fire and Rescue, and other community planning partners.

Those taking part are faced with real-life scenarios depicting emergency situations. The pupils assess the dangers and risks presented and learn how to deal with them in a safe setting. Typical scenarios include fire safety, first aid, road safety, water safety, and safe Internet use. After completing the course the participants are faced with a knowledge check in the form of a quiz. They are then given a debrief and the messages are reinforced.
