Crucial Crew 2022 teaches children how to cope in an emergency

Wed, 11 May 2022

Multiple agencies will come together to teach primary school children how to stay safe and look after their mental health at a community event in Douglas next week.

Since it began, the Crucial Crew project has taught thousands of children, who are about to make the move to secondary school, important skills such as CPR and road safety.

This year, along with talks and workshops by the emergency services and St John Ambulance, there will be interactive sessions on active travel and mental health.

The five day event will be held at the Villa Marina and gets under way on 16 May.

This year’s talks include:

  • Isle of Man Constabulary – Make a choice, choose a consequence
  • Fire and Rescue Service – Safety at home
  • Coastguard & RNLI – Water Safety
  • Isle Listen - Mentally Preparing for Secondary School
  • St John Ambulance – CPR
  • Road Safety & Active Travel- Safe Routes to School

The project will also explain how to respond in an emergency, including when to dial 999.

Primary schools taking part have all been challenged to create a safety message, which includes information about one or more of the agencies involved.

The winner will be chosen and announced at the event.
