On Monday 31st July we went to Spiral Wave Radio in Bevendean Brighton and recorded a radio show on Fire evacuation procedures. It was very interesting as we had someone from the council and someone from the fire service as guests on the show. We discussed how disabled people could be evacuated safely when in a public building and how it is important if you have a disability to make sure a member of staff knows you have entered a building and if there is a fire it means they can make sure you are evacuated safely.
We discussed what to do in your own home and how it is important to have a smoke alarm. I found it useful that we also discussed ways of helping to prevent fire for example unplugging things at night and keeping doors shut to help prevent a fire from spreading. I found the whole discussion on evacuation reassuring and I hope it will help to build awareness.
After we discussed evacuation I talked about the Young People’s Peer Support group. I talked about how the first meeting had gone and how much we enjoyed it. I also mentioned the petition that I’ve helped write to ask the Harry Potter Studios to provide touch tours for visually impaired people.
I feel that the radio was a great success and an amazing experience. I’m looking forward to doing more shows in the future.
