1. Dress-up and role-play a variety of emergency workers
  2. Use real life equipment to learn about home fire safety
  3. Scan your finger at the Police Station to see your fingerprint up close
  4. See how quickly water can rise in floods and learn the phonetic alphabet at the SES station
  5. Climb inside the ambulance, practice your bandaging technique or lie down on the stretcher bed

Little ones will be intrigued by the lights and sounds, and have fun exploring. Young ones will enjoy dressing up and role-playing. Older children will learn the different safety messages and understand their importance. Adults (we haven’t forgotten you) can enjoy playing with your children and be taken on the imaginative journey, while picking up practical tips to keep your family safe

Learn through play

Allowing children and adults to role-play as these vital members of our community and learn how to stay safe in an emergency. The Experience aims to build confidence in children if they need to make a triple zero call and to not be afraid of the emergency services. Children will have to learn to share and take turns in the different areas.

Backed by research

Built in consultation directly with emergency services, the true-to-life Experience focuses on immersing children through play, while still delivering important emergency messages.
