SAL with PFD
Save a Life with a Personal Floatation Device- was the message Safe Communities promoted when supplying United Way Volunteers with PFD's for the annual Duck Derby held in Coboconk.
Don't Text and Drive
Safe Communities Kawartha Lakes supported the Boys & Girls CLub of Kawartha Lakes in their Race for Kids event. The challenge poised to each race participant was to try to text a message (with perfect structure, grammar and spelling) while riding a bike around an obstacle course. This challenge helped to 'drive' home the message 'Don't Text and Drive.'
Partners in the Commumnity
Safe Communities KL partnered with the Lindsay Agricultural Society and Home Hardware at the annual All About Horses event. Two lucky contest winners received new bikes from Home Hardware and helmets courtesy of Safe Communities.

Safe Communities Joins P's in the Park

Championing the 'Wear the Gear' campaign and using a 'jello brain, Safe Communities representatives demonstrated what can happen when you fall off a bicyle and are not wearing a helmet.
