Devon, Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Local Resilience Forum has seen tremendous value in the education and training of young people in emergency response.

On a national scale the scheme has the potential to reach 1.5 million young people to give them an understanding of what to do during a major incident and to provide essential community support in times of crisis.

Potentially this award will instil community cohesion, raise awareness of vulnerable people in the community and develop a form of self-reliance in major incidents.

On a local scale the scheme has already proved to be a fantastic example of how 999 services and partner agencies can fulfil their commitment to engage with young people from diverse backgrounds and organisations.

It also brings together all uniformed youth groups in an area, promoting more effective engagement.
