IFE Centenary Conference

In September 2017 Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service (CFRS) opened the doors of a new state-of the-art lifeskills centre, Safety Central, aimed primarily at keeping young people safe. This prompted the Service’s decision to focus their forthcoming Institution of Fire Engineers centenary conference on and around young people.

The one day event, ‘100 Years Young – futureproofing Generation Alpha’, hosted by North Western Branch and Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service and sponsored by Paragon Creative, is on Wednesday 26 September July at Safety Central, Lymm, Warrington, Cheshire. The title celebrates the IFE Centenary as well as highlighting the focus on young people born after 2011, designated Generation Alpha and predicted to be the most transformative generation ever.

More awards success for Safe and Well Visits programme

Awards continue to roll in for our groundbreaking initiative that continues to improve the health of potentially vulnerable people.

Our Safe and Well Visits programme – for the over 65s and people who are referred to the fire service by partner agencies because they are considered to be at a particular risk – has scooped a host of awards since it was launched in February 2017 in collaboration with the NHS and local authority directors of public health.

The latest success saw the initiative win the Innovation in the Care of Long Term Conditions gong at the NHS Healthcare Transformation Awards at the ExCeL Exhibition Centre in London for the second year running.
