Safety Through the Ages:
Learning never ends - that's why schools are an ideal place for children and young adults to learn life-long lessons about how to be safe as a pedestrian, bicycle rider, or young athlete. Almost all of us participate in at least one of these healthy, outdoor activities every day - from kindergarten right into adulthood.
Teaching crosswalk and bicycle safety in schools can spread these safety lessons to children throughout an entire city, county, or district - and PTA organizations can reinforce these lessons through parental support.
These efforts can save a life and reduce the number of injuries relating to these activities in an entire city, county, or district. For instance, our WalkSafe program - originally piloted in one of the largest counties in South Florida - reduced pediatric pedestrian injury rates by 72% over a 10-year time period.
Likewise, our countywide concussion management program, through evaluation, has able to track and monitor the recovery of high school student athletes that have sustained a concussion, returning them to play in a safe manner.
We encourage school systems throughout the country to utilize our educational resources. Our resources are free - all we ask in return is for individual schools to submit a simple, online completion report whenever our curricula have been used. This allows us to track the success of our programs.
