Greater Manchester Safety Centre

Experiential Learning Centre


Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service have developed a state-of-the-art training centre and community hub in Bury which includes an experiential safety education centre.
A 10-acre area of land has been transformed to provide the most realistic training and development for firefighters as well as an interactive community facility for local people.


Paragon Creative was appointed by Kier Moss, the Main Contractor as a specialist contractor to work with the client team to design develop, build and install the set works and interactives which bring the scenarios to life.

We have completed these works which include the following scenarios; bonfires, home safety, smoke maze, traffic safety, personal safety and emergency control rooms.

Groups arrive into a simulated fire control room where they'll see the different types of incidents GMFRS attends and have the chance to listen to a real 999 call.
There is a simulated road traffic collision scene and a 'fire house' where visitors can spot hazards and carry out a Home Safety Check.
Visitors have the chance to enter a post-fire bedroom where they'll see first-hand the damage that can be caused by a fire.
During their visit, groups are given their own fire kit to wear and they'll experience all the elements of a real fire - the smell of smoke, the heat of a fire and the sound of the sirens.
