To avoid danger, children must first learn to recognize it. Taking a SAFETY WALK makes young children aware of hazards in their neighbourhoods. The War Amps encourages adults to lead walks through their communities, pointing out to children the potential dangers along the way. By taking the time to look at familiar surroundings from a child’s point of view, adults can teach children how to recognize danger to avoid accidents and injury.
To get started on your own SAFETY WALK, print off these resources.
Free SAFETY WALK Kits, which include a list of potential hazards, brochures, stickers and worksheets, can also be mailed, upon request.
