Fire Safety DVD Launch

A huge well done to the Independence Studio and their excellent Fire Safety animated DVD which we premiered this afternoon at the Grace Little Centre. 

With an introduction from Sheila our CEO followed by Christine our Chair and a short speech from Mark Clement from Cumbria County Council, we watched the short film. A huge round of applause at the end confirmed it as a success! The local fire crew joined us with their fire engine and complimented the Independence studio on the accuracy and quality of their work. 

If you would like a copy of the DVD please get in touch with us.

The DVD is an accessible information short film made by people with learning disabilities at the Independence Studio and supported by Cumbria Fire and Rescue.
