Safe Kids Week 2019

2019 Safe Kids Week - June 3rd to June 9, 2019

#FallProofYourHome

 

Parachute Safe Kids Week, sponsored by Hydro One and brought to Wellington County by Safe Communities Wellington County, is an annual campaign to raise public awareness of child safety issues, encouraging community involvement as part of the solution. 

Parachute Safe Kids Week 2019 takes place June 3 to 9, with hundreds of communities holding events across Canada. This year our messaging focuses on the topic of preventing harm from children’s falls in the home and at play. We’ll also be sharing our messaging and prevention tips widely on social media for #SKW2019.

Download your falls checklist and present it to 1 of our 14 libary branches in Wellington County for a ballot to win a prize!

About Safe Communities Wellington County

The vision of Safe Communities Wellington County as part of Parachute is “To make Wellington County, the safest and healthiest place in which to live, learn, work and play in Canada.”

A safe community is one that promotes safe and healthy behaviours and protects people from hurt and harm. The Safe Communities Wellington Committee, with representatives from local municipal councils, emergency services, public health, hospitals, school boards and other stakeholders with an interest in making Wellington County a safe place to live, made it their goal to have Wellington County designated a Safe Community by 2013.
