Targeted intervention days are an intensive exploration of a specific risk theme or local issue. The day long session fuses practical scenarios with educational safety activities all central to the issue being tackled.
These sessions can be adapted to suit any group and be used to tackle specific issues. The one day sessions can accommodate up to 15 young people and be completed between 10 am and 3 pm or between 4 pm and 9 pm. The later sessions can also act as a diversionary activity around peak times for blue light calls to prevent high levels of antisocial behaviour (ASB).
Targeted Intervention Days aim to reduce the number of specific issues a local area experiences through an engaging and challenging session for the young people involved.
The day will challenge young people’s perceptions and ask them to take responsibility for their actions and build a relationship with their local fire station.
The five hour sessions can cover one of the following themes:
FAST, FURIOUS & FATAL
A session to look at road safety and the consequences of reckless driving, practically investigating what the aftermath of a crash is.
An experience-orientated session looking at the dangers of fire setting and ASB.
An interactive day focusing on the issues surrounding open water. It investigates what consequences could be of misusing open water and looks at plans to keep safe
ACTION STRIKE BACK
A challenging and provoking session for those involved or associated with ASB.
Challenging young people to consider the effects of ASB and playing with fireworks and during the bonfire night period, or at other times of the year if an issue arises.
