The Lifewise Centre

Safety Education Centre

Lifewise is a South Yorkshire Police led partnership initiative with the Fire Service and Local Authority which promotes community safety and positive citizenship across the county. The Lifewise Centre is a purpose built arena in a former disused steel works within which scenario based events can be held and is now the permanent home for the South Yorkshire Police ‘Crucial Crew’ event. 

Crucial Crew is a life skills initiative that teaches children and young people how to deal with and avoid a range of potentially hazardous situations, by means of interactive learning in a role based realistic environment. 

In addition to safe cycling & road safety interactives, Paragon Creative is proud to be developing and producing an interactive voting wall for the centre to help the team quantify their successes. “The interactive voting board provides a great visual stimulus for our visitors while registering feedback linked closely to the experience at lifewise.”

STAFF FOCUS: Tim DeCoste, Interactives Workshop Manager

Q: Name?
A: Tim DeCoste but they call me moose now there’s four Tims.

Q: What and where did you study?
A: Seaquam secondary school in my motherland of Canada. University didn’t seem challenging enough so I went to major in waterparks abroad.

Q: How long have you worked at Paragon Creative?
A: 3 years this month.

Q: What development / training have you undertaken since joining the team?
A: IOSH managing safely and the ever-important manual handling and fire warden training. And of course the sage mentoring of Jon Myers (Operations Director) and Chris Nuttall (Technical Director).

Q: Favourite Project to work on and why?
A: Dig It Dubai Springs. It was an achievable project that has resulted in a great success which is always a boost knowing the work our department put in to it, I’m sure others did OK as well. I also got to be involved in the installation, something I don’t often get to be a part of, luckily I still have my old work boots so I almost blended in seamlessly if not for my eloquent speaking and perfect hair.

Q: What do you like about working at Paragon?
A: Everyday poses a new challenge. It’s also close to home so that’s nice.

Q: Dream project to work on?
A: If we could do something ice hockey or maple syrup based I’d be very much in my comfort zone.

Q: What does your department do?
A: Builds big toys!
