Safety Centre Milton Keynes Hazard Alley
An  interactive indoor educational safety centre

Imagine a place where  children can experience and learn how to react to a house fire, an oncoming  train, a drowning person and various other dangerous situations, but all in  perfect safety and under instruction by highly trained staff thats HAZARD  ALLEY!

The Charity

Opened in 1994 we are a  partnership-based community safety project, involving Thames Valley Police and  Buckinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service, other statutory organisations, local  government, health authorities and the private sector. The Centre is not  centrally funded and as a registered charity relies heavily on donations and  sponsorship.

Our Aim

Our primary aim is to help education  children in the 7 – 12 age range about the hazards of the modern world and to  improve safety in the community. The theme of safety is linked to the National  Curriculum, so our Teachers Pack is designed to make the visit to Hazard Alley  part of the years work, giving suggestions for pre-visit preparation and  post-visit follow-up work.

The Centre

Using our very  life-like safety scenarios, our specially trained guides deliver the messages in  a very interactive and effective way, giving visitors a truly stimulation and  memorable experience.

Amongst the messages we deliver are:-
 

  • Road safety
     
  • Personal safety and protective behaviour
     
  • Safety in the home
     
  • The consequences of crime on victims and offenders
     
  • How vandalism and anti-social behaviour affects others
     
  • Railway/Farm/Water safety
     
  • Dangers on building sites
     
  • Demonstration the Recovery Position
     


Volunteers

We always need more volunteer tour guides to show small groups of  children around the Centre. Our guides receive full training with the  opportunity to learn at their own pace. Travelling expenses/attendance  allowances are paid.
If you are interested in this rewarding and worthwhile  work find out more by ringing: 01908 263009

The Safety Centre was  recently lucky enough to have help from the Knowledge Media Institute at the  Open University revamping our website. The new site is more interactive and  gives children the opportunity to access games and information. It also offers  teaches additional follow-up materials for use back in school

We now  offer HSE approved First Aid at Work courses for industry. The tuition which is  of the highest standard, will be given by trained paramedics. More information  can be obtained by ringing 01908 263009 and asking for Barbara  Cherryman.

This year our Open Day will be held on Sunday August 11th  between 10.00am and 4.00pm Admission is Free and as well as being able to see  around the Centre we are also visited by the Emergency Services.
