Hard-hitting films highlighting the dangers of pedestrians using mobile phones or iPods will be shown to pupils as part of a road safety campaign.
Pupils in Millom, in Cumbria, will spend a day learning about the devastation caused by road accidents.
Cumbria Fire and Rescue firefighters will take part in the event on Friday and discuss their experiences.
The road awareness training has been organised by the local authority-funded Safer Roads For Cumbria.
Cumbria Fire and Rescue's Dave Edgar said: "Getting young people to think carefully about their own road safety is extremely important.
"These school visits are designed to get the message across that failing to think before crossing the road or getting into a friend's car can have devastating consequences."
