Safety Event Celebrates Quarter of a Century

18th Sep 18

The annual Crucial Crew Safety event is getting ready to mark its 25th anniversary, with Agencies working in partnership to deliver important safety learnings to our county’s youngsters.

With the continued support of South Hook LNG, Pembrokeshire County Council is once again bringing together Agencies including Road Safety, the Police, Ambulance & Fire Services, RNLI, Domestic Abuse, Food Safety and Western Power, providing focused safety learnings to around 1400 schoolchildren.

During the past 25 years, thousands of Pembrokeshire youngsters have received important safety insights through Crucial Crew. From understanding basic first aid, road and coastal safety to recognising domestic abuse situations and online awareness, children continue to be guided through realistic scenarios that promote the importance of staying safe. 

County Councillor Phil Baker, Cabinet Member for Planning and Infrastructure, said: “I am delighted that once again Pembrokeshire’s young students will have the opportunity to learn important life skills at Crucial Crew.

“I would like to thank both our sponsor and the agencies taking part in this, the 25th year. Congratulations to all involved.”
As partners prepare for this year’s event in November, celebrations for the milestone anniversary began earlier in the year. A competition launched by the Local Authority saw the creation of a celebratory banner by Wriana Samsam formerly of St Mary’s RC School, Pembroke Dock.

“For twenty five years, Pembrokeshire County Council has been delivering Crucial Crew with the support of local Agencies and organisations committed to safety education,” commented Mariam Dalziel, PR Manager at South Hook LNG Terminal.
“At South Hook LNG, we are proud to have been a part of the event for the past eight years, being able to support an initiative that echoes the value that we too, place on safety.”
