This Friday we and lots of our partners got together to be a powerful presence at the Academy of St. Nicholas’s free fun day.
Ourselves, Mersey Fire and Rescue, Merseytravel and Merseyside Police were all on site engaging with all ages and backgrounds.
We spent a lot of time with Merseyfire learning how they educate all ages with the compassionately donated resource of a tragically crashed car.
The level of detail given about the circumstances and consequences of the crash was tailored each time to be age appropriate. It was obvious that being up close to, and seeing the inside of, a completely wrecked vehicle updated people’s perception about what they thought it would be like in a collision.
It was fantastic to be able to talk to people about their safety on the roads from so many different perspectives. We all worked together with the Merseyside community to make it clear: we share the roads, and we share the responsibility.
