Older Persons Crucial Crew

Organisations from across Tendring including Essex County Fire and Rescue Service, Trading Standards, Community Voluntary Services Tendring, Police, Essex Carers Support and Tendring District Council (TDC) organise an annual Older Persons Crucial Crew event to highlight potential dangers faced in everyday life and share vital safety messages which could help save lives.

Topics covered include emergency planning for floods, cold weather, hot weather, fire safety, personal safety, rogue traders, and what to do with callers at the door.

Students from Tendring Enterprise Studio School support the events by showing delegates how IPads could be useful.

The students also prepared and served a free buffet lunch, which was sponsored by the East of England Cooperative, and chatted with the attendees as well as creating a short video of the event which is attached in the useful links section.
