New ‘Road Safety Experience’ will open next year
Kent Fire & Rescue Service is developing what it describes as the UK’s “first purpose built, interactive (road safety education) centre”.
Currently under construction on the same site as the new Rochester Fire Station, the ‘Road Safety Experience’ is scheduled to open by Easter 2016.
The Road Safety Experience is being developed to help young people learn from the experience of others and improve their safety, and equip them to make “better decisions in all driver and passenger situations”.
The experience will comprise a combination of “powerful stories, exciting interactive experiences and information from experienced road safety experts” to encourage young people to look at the potential consequences of a collision from all perspectives – themselves, their passengers, other drivers and their families.
It will be provided free of charge to all schools, colleges and groups in Kent and Medway, and will accommodate supervised education visits, lasting five hours, for groups of up to 85 young people. It will also be available to youth groups.
New website includes members’ portal and info on training courses etc
