The Fire and Rescue Service attend around twice as many road incidents as domestic house fires each year.
The prompt response of our crews working alongside other Emergency Services at the scene of an incident has saved many lives and reduced the long-term impact of injuries.
We also work with statutory partners such as County Council road safety officers to educate ‘at-risk’ groups such as young drivers and their passengers about the dangers of;
- Failure to judge another vehicles path or speed
- ‘Looked but did not see’
- Careless/ thoughtless driving
- Reckless driving
- Lack of judgement
Details of training for newly qualified drivers can be found below:
