Holiday hazards Full lesson plan from redcross.org.uk/education
The scene It's a major summer festival. Tens of thousands of people are gathering to listen to music and enjoy the atmosphere. Your challenge You are at the front of a crowd when you notice someone who is looking unwell – they look flushed and a bit shaky on their feet. How would you help them?
The scene You're on holiday at the coast in the South West of the UK. Some people where you are staying say that there have been large jellyfish on the local beach recently. The jellyfish can be up to a metre across. Your challenge Say what you would take with you to the beach and how you would reduce the risks of being stung by a jellyfish. Describe what you would do if someone was stung by a jellyfish.
The scene You're looking round a museum in the French capital, Paris. As you stand in front of a painting, you find yourself being jostled, people getting closer to you than they need. You realise that someone has their hand near your shoulder bag, trying to undo the fastener. Your challenge Say what you would do to protect yourself from pickpockets. Where and how would you store your cash, cards and phone? If your purse or wallet was stolen whilst you were abroad, what would you do next?
The scene You are holidaying abroad and have taken a day trip out to a small island. Whilst there, you hear of a tsunami alert in the region. Your challenge What do you do? How do you respond to the tsunami warning?
The scene It is a hot day in the summer by the coast. You are out with friends. Someone suggests cooling off, by jumping into the sea from the harbour wall. Your challenge It is obvious to you that some of the group don't understand the dangers involved in the activity. What do you do or say?
The scene You're on holiday and have gone to a popular nightclub. It's small and gets very busy. Your friend is nervous, not sure whether it's safe to stay. Your challenge Make a quick assessment of the safety of the nightclub. Are there any obvious fire risks? Do the nightclub owners seem to be following basic fire safety laws? List the signs you could look out for that would help in making a decision.
