Outdoors on the streetscape for the final hour, children practice their new skills as drivers and pedestrians. Maximum of 25 students per class. Bicycle helmet required.

Do you have a home escape plan? Do your students know how to call 911? This 1.5 hour program combines a safety lesson with hands-on-activities, to teach about how fires start, ways to eliminate fire hazards from the home, and how to create a home escape plan. Children also practice calling 911. In the Fire Safe House, children conduct a kitchen inspection and put their home escape plan into action.
Dates available: September and October
The interactive 1.5 hour program teaches children to recognize potential dangers and avoid injury on the acreage or farm.

In the Safety Centre for the final 45 minutes of activity, children practice new safety skills at displays including animal safety, ATV, grain handling, dugout and chemical safety.
