Shipston youngster gets Fire Safety award

Stratford Editorial 27th May, 2015 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

A SAFETY-conscious Shipston youngster has shown she knows all about fire safety.

Lola Schofield was awarded for taking part in the Junior Fire Safety Scheme run by Warwickshire Fire Service, which teaches children everything from how to spot potential fire hazards to how to check their family home.

The scheme also involves a talk on smoke alarms, kitchen and electrical safety and a night-time ‘turn it off’ routine.

The Shipston Primary School pupil was presented with a certificate by Community Fire Safety Officer, Andy Morgan during a school assembly, along with a £25 WHSmith gift voucher after being picked out of the monthly prize draw.

Schools liaison officer, Ruth Greenhalgh said: “The aim of the Junior Fire Safety Champion Scheme is to educate young people about fire safety, electrical fire safety and how to stay safe in the home.

“By completing the assessment, Lola has shown just how much the scheme can benefit young people and their families.”
