Community Safety team helps young people stay safe

AS part of ongoing SummerSafe campaign, which sees partners across Greater Manchester work together to tackle anti-social behaviour to ensure everyone has a safe and enjoyable time – young people in Tameside have received a visit from Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service (GMFRS).

Water safety is a key element of the SummerSafe campaign, with a bespoke drowning prevention campaign also running to prevent incidents of this type from occurring across the city-region.

To reinforce safety messages, particularly those aimed at young people to help them stay safe around open water, GMFRS community safety advisors have visited Denton Community College, a high school for 11-16-year-olds.

The visit was carried out by Roberta McIntosh and Lauren Roberts on Friday, August 6, 2021, when around 100 Year 6 pupils - who are due to start at the high school in September - took part in a number of educational sessions throughout the day.
