Home Safety Activity Badge

How to earn your badge:

  1. Find out what to do about a burst water pipe, gas leak or electricity  power failure in your home.
  2. Identify the common causes of accidents in the home. How they can be prevented?
  3. Find out how to protect your home from crime.
  4. Find out where the nearest public telephone box is to your house. Where else could you make an emergency call if the public telephone wasn’t working?
  5. Make a list of useful emergency numbers.


Each young person who participates in the Programme, including badges and awards, should face a similar degree of challenge, and requirements can be adapted according to each young person’s abilities.  For more information and practical tips see our guidance on flexibility
