Think Safe is an active safety training programme in which children take part in mock ups of dangers they may face in everyday day life and learn through experience how to deal with them. Think Safe activities run across the Safer North Hampshire area.
The type of activities they learn about include road, water, fire, gas, consumer, emergency first aid, avoiding abduction and bogus callers to the door. They also have the opportunity to make a mock 999 emergency call to know what to do if a real emergency arises.
Think Safe is organised by a variety of agencies and is able to run due to the tremendous support of the agencies that participate in the various events and provide staff time and resources free. It is the commitment of everyone involved to educate children in Hampshire about safety to reduce accidents at home, school or play and to produce safer citizens for the future.
