Fighting fire with fun

 

Young people in Ballyarnett and the surrounding areas have been learning all about the hard work of the Fire Service thanks to Derry & Strabane PCSP and On Street Community Youth.

Summer can be a time when tensions run high so to divert some of that energy and respond to attacks on the emergency services in the area, the PCSP organised visits to the local Northland Road fire station so that young people could get a closer look at what firefighters are all about.

The visits were designed to build a greater sense of community between young people, residents and the emergency services, as well as reducing the amount of anti-social behaviour and crime within the communities surrounding Ballyarnett.
