Crucial Crew: helping schoolchildren stay safe

Taking part in a mock school bus evacuation, crawling through a smoke-filled house and learning lifesaving first aid - over 1400 Year 6 children from across Pembrokeshire experienced this and more, at the Crucial Crew event. 

With safety being so important to everyone at South Hook, we were once again, proud to be a part of such a strong safety initiative within our community, reaching children across Pembrokeshire. Crucial Crew includes a range of workshops run by the emergency services and other organisations, all designed to boost safety awareness among 10 and 11 year olds. 

Children from 42 local primary schools participated in the event, which took place over two weeks at Withybush Showground.

Since Crucial Crew began in 1993, over 21,500 Pembrokeshire schoolchildren have taken part in different events, receiving safety education and information across a wide range of topics, from coastal safety and road awareness, to domestic abuse and cyber bullying.
