Why has Kent Fire and Rescue Service built the Road Safety Experience?
KFRS now attends more road traffic collisions than house fires. We have been involved in delivering road safety education in schools for a number of years. The development of the centre allows us to expand the work that we do.
The initial idea came from our work with a group of secondary students who approached us to task them with a business idea for their citizenship programme. We tested their idea of a road safety centre on groups of other students and on our road safety partners which is when the idea of the Road Safety Experience was born.
