Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service work with #KidsInVis charity to support road safety education in Bournemouth


Date: 22nd January, 2019

Over the next few weekends firefighters in Bournemouth and Christchurch are working with local Bournemouth charity, #KidsInVis, to give away high vis vests to young children that walk to school.

Local children and their families can head to Redhill Park fire station this Saturday (26th January) between 10am and 1pm and Christchurch fire station on Saturday 2nd February between 10am and 1pm, to pick up a free vest and receive some vital road safety advice from firefighters and police officers.

Watch Manager Brad Stevens, based at Redhill Park said: “We are really pleased to be working with #KidsInVis to make our community safer. Walking with children is a great way to keep active in Bournemouth but in the dark winter mornings and evenings it can be dangerous. With a free high viz vest from #KidsInVis and armed with some road safety advice from us, hopefully families can enjoy this activity whilst staying safe.”

Mike Trimby, founder of #KidsInVis said: “With the invaluable help of our Emergency Services & donations from our community & local businesses, we’ve been able to giveaway nearly 8,000 hi visability vests for kids aged 4-6! We want to keep this at the forefront of road safety initiatives & help to keep our vulnerable kids a bit safer on the journeys to & from school.”
