Safety in Summer

Please take the time to read this message from our friends at the Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service and visit their website at this link: Safe4Summer internet link

A message from GM Fire and Rescue

'This summer has seen record levels of lovely hot weather and we are sure that pupils/students are looking forward to having lots of fun with family and friends in the school holidays'

'Should this sunny and hot weather continue, then there is no doubt that you will all want to spend more time outside, however we want everyone to be as safe as possible during the summer break.'

'You will have seen the reports about the recent grass and moorland fires across Greater Manchester, which stretched our resources to their limit and had the potential to cause harm and injury.

Sadly, we have also had several drownings during this recent hot spell, involving young people attempting to cool off in open water.

Just before the schools break up, we wanted to take one last opportunity to let you know about all the useful information on the Safe4Summer website (including an iPad competition for the young people to enter). Please click on the web-link for more information.

Every summer holiday sees a sharp increase in the number of incidents on the railways involving young people. Please see the video below for further information.
