Youth engagement is a top priority at London Fire Brigade, and we have a number of different programmes and initiatives to educate, inspire and build confidence. These include:
We believe the best way to keep Londoners safe is through fire safety education – and that starts primary school. Our dedicated Education Team and firefighters are here to help your children learn about home fire safety.Visit the Schools pages

The Juvenile Firesetters Intervention Scheme works with children and young people – up to the age of 18 – who play with fire or who have set fires. If you know a child or young person you are concerned about, or you have spotted worrying signs, talk to us. Acting now can save lives.Juvenile Firesetters Intervention Scheme
Bring the Great Fire of London to life for your class with a school visit. Ideal for KS1, we run special sessions where children can get hands-on with firefighting history, and get inspired by a professional storyteller who'll spark their imaginations retelling the dramatic days that changed London forever.Visit our Museum pages
