Cornwall Fire & Rescue's interactive safety centre Flashpoint is working with Devon and Somerset Fire and Plymouth People First to deliver a series of courses for people in their area with learning disabilities.
The first of nine self advocacy groups went to visit the Flashpoint Centre in Bodmin in early April. Visitors enjoyed a supported tour of 11 different zones, spotting hazards and learning how to either avoid them or make them safe. Amongst the participants were two with hearing impairment and we were able to help with signing by Sonia, one of the Flashpoint volunteer team.
Flashpoint Manager Ellen McConnell added "Huge thanks to the lovely volunteers who ran the sessions”.
