EDUCATION

Welcome to Buckinghamshire Fire & Rescue Service’s education area

Buckinghamshire Fire & Rescue Service aims to make Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes the safest place in England in which to live, work and travel. 

In order to achieve this, the service delivers educational packages, including lessons and resources free of charge to schools and community groups. We believe that prevention through education is of great importance and is a fantastic tool to engage with our communities.  

We work in partnership with many organisations, one of which is the Safety Centre in Milton Keynes, who provide an excellent educational service to children and young people throughout Buckinghamshire.

For lessons and information of the Great Fire of London, People who help us and Emergency services topics please contact www.safetycentre.co.uk or 01908 263009.
