What not to do with a chip plan and other potential life saving information is passed on to local school children during annual Junior Life Skills event.
SCHOOL children from across North Devon and Torridge have been having fun while learning a very serious message that could make the difference between life and death.
Some 1,500 year six children are currently taking part in the Junior Life Skills programme, organised by Torridge and North Devon district councils.
The event hosted at Barnstaple Town Football Club sees emergency service personnel, health and other professionals teaches children about day-to-day dangers and real-life emergencies they or members of their family may face.
From the explosive perils of putting water on a chip pan fire to life-saving resuscitation techniques and the dangers of alcohol, the fun sessions also help to equip the youngsters with vital skills and knowledge at the same time.
