The event is the final of seven ‘Crucial Crews’ events set up by Norfolk Fire and Rescue service for 2018 - with one being held in each Norfolk district.

Pupils from 20 schools will head to Haven’s Seashore Holiday Park in Caister for two hour workshops, which take place from November 12-16.

Chairman of Norfolk County Council’s Communities Committee, councillor Margaret Dewsbury, said: “The information these children learn stays with them and gives them the confidence to know what to do in safety-related situation.

“Proof of its success was highlighted this summer when two friends swung into action in Diss to help an injured boy.”
