The Summer Safety Awareness Campaign aims to prevent accidental child deaths or serious injury by promoting water safety, preventing window falls, and reminding parents to never leave a child alone in a car, under any circumstances, for any amount of time.
As part of this effort, and in conjunction with our local police partners, complementary car seat inspections and installations are offered, and a series of educational activities for children are made available by our community partners.
In addition, our summer safety work includes visits to youth camps across the county, where the District Attorney hosts a game of Summer Safety Jeopardy, an interactive way to engage children in learning about summer safety tips. This program engages grades K-5 about the best ways to stay safe during the summer. Topics discussed include safety related to water, bicycles, fireworks, windows and cars. Students then play a game of Jeopardy to review the topics.
