We know this is a really hard time for everyone, so for however long the Covid-19 situation goes on for, we’ll be sharing lots of fun and useful stuff on this page, and on our social media channels, to make you smile, keep you entertained, keep you safe and well, and remind everyone that we’re all in this together.
Lots of parents will be trying to home school their children at the moment, so to help out we’ll be bringing you mini lessons in the form of videos from our fire service education team, who usually go into schools and teach children about fire safety in line with the primary curriculum, and other activities.
Have you met our fire service mascot family? - The Byrnes Family. We have a website dedicated to them and there you'll find fun activities for children so be sure to check it out.
This page will be regularly updated, so be sure to keep coming back to see what useful information and creative ideas we have for you and your family. This is all part of our #KentTogether campaign to help everyone in Kent through this really tough time, because we're all in this together.
Stay home and stay safe.
