Staffordshire Fire & Rescue Service - Preventing, Protecting, Responding

Safe+Sound

safe+sound logo

Safe+Sound is a resource that aims to help our communities to make informed lifestyle choices. The centre offers interactive, lifelike scenarios that will allow people to immerse themselves in a learning experience that aims to reduce the risk of harm from unintentional injuries and to promote personal resilience, independence and responsibility.

Safe+Sound strives to be inclusive and accessible to all and aims to maintain a strong focus on those most at risk from harm or unintentional injuries. Under the Safe+Sound brand, outreach work will also take place which will take elements of the immersive technologies to communities where travel to the centre based in Stafford is not a viable option.
