Olympic Effort For Fire Safety
Merseyside Fire & Rescue Service engaged with almost 6,000 school pupils who were taking part in an Olympic themed record breaker.

Firefighters from Crosby Community Fire Station attended the Olympic Torch Ring event at Crosby Beach.

Pupils from schools across Sefton set a world record by creating the biggest human logo of the five Olympic Rings.

It was held as to mark the arrival of the Olympic Flame to Sefton and firefighters had the opportunity to engage with the children at the event.

Fire crews and MF&RS community advocates handed out fire safety messages and road safety leaflets and MF&RS quad bikes were also at the beach.

Jen Strype, Merseyside Fire & Rescue Service Anti-social Behaviour Reduction Advocate, said: “It was a great event, which thousands of pupils took part in and was a very good opportunity for Merseyside Fire & Rescue Service to engage with children.

“They had the chance to see some of our vehicles up close and chat to firefighters. We were also able to deliver some very important fire safety and road safety messages.”
