Design students at Bedford College have helped Bedfordshire Fire & Rescue (BFRS) teach youngsters about fire safety by coming up with ideas for modern educational resources for primary schools.
The team came up with a number of ideas around Stop, Drop and Roll; calling 999; and matches and lighter use.
They are all part of educational safety messages that BFRS deliver to year two pupils and will also be submitted to a national emergency services resource website called StayWise.
“The designs were all brilliant, we’re really impressed. The students paid close attention to the brief and created some fantastic and very useful new resources” said a spokesperson from BFRS.
Matthew Hunt, work placement coordinator at Bedford College added: “We are very grateful to the fire service for giving our students the chance to participate in a real design challenge and we hope their work proves useful in community work with children.”
