AN ANNUAL safety day has once again passed on important advice to children across Pembrokeshire.

The Crucial Crew safety event, organised by Pembrokeshire County Council and supported by South Hook LNG, gave 1400 local schoolchildren, aged between 10 and 11 years the chance to learn how to safeguard against a range of dangers.

Children were guided through a series of workshops focusing on a range of topics including basic first aid, road safety, food hygiene, domestic abuse, beach safety, fire and power line awareness as well as behaviour around dogs.

Cllr Phil Baker Cabinet Member for Planning and Infrastructure said: “We were delighted to welcome 46 schools to Crucial Crew this year.

“We’re very grateful to South Hook LNG for supporting such an important event, and to all the agencies which took part and made the event so enjoyable and informative for local children.

“If just some of the training stays with our young people it will help to save lives in the future.”

The organisations taking part were this year were: Welsh Ambulance Service, Pembrokeshire County Council (PCC) Dog Wardens, PCC Domestic Abuse, Dyfed Powys Police, PCC Food Safety, Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service, PCC Road Safety, RNLI, PCC School Transport, and Western Power Distribution.
