‘Crucial Crew’ to provide important Safety Learnings for Local Schoolchildren
Safety is high on the agenda once again as around 1,400 schoolchildren from across Pembrokeshire get set to gain new insights into staying safe.
With continued support from South Hook LNG, Pembrokeshire County Council’s annual ‘Crucial Crew’ event will be held in November. Year six pupils from 46 primary schools across the County will be guided through a series of workshops that focus on important safety learnings.
Cabinet Member for Infrastructure & Assets Cllr Phil Baker commented, “All agencies are proud to be involved in Crucial Crew, it is a vital intervention in enabling us to educate the children of Pembrokeshire with important key safety messages”.
On the theme of internet safety, Dyfed Powys Police will explain the potential dangers of social media, whilst other workshops will focus on physical forms of wellbeing. From basic first aid, road safety, food hygiene and domestic abuse to beach safety, fire and power line awareness and behaviour around dogs, a number of Agencies will be on hand to guide children through realistic scenarios in which they need to recognise the importance of staying safe.
“With so many important safety learnings given through this event, we are pleased to be continuing our support of Pembrokeshire County Council and the invaluable work of all the agencies that take the time to be involved,” commented South Hook LNG’s General Manager, Rob Else. “Crucial Crew promotes a mind-set amongst Pembrokeshire’s youngsters that echoes the safety values inherent in the way we operate at the Terminal.”
Now in its 24th year, Crucial Crew is an established safety initiative for Pembrokeshire’s primary schools.
This year’s event will be held over a two-week period, from 7th to 16th November.
Cllr Phil Baker and Kirstie Donoghue of Pembrokeshire County Council are joined by Lalo Tamilia, Health & Safety Officer at South Hook LNG Terminal and PCs Caroline Davies and Jenny Thomas of Dyfed Powys Police, as preparations are made for Crucial Crew.
