Summer Safety Days 2017

Summer Safety Days is an educational event arranged by Kingston: Partners for a Safe Community in early May. The program involves a group of interactive pit stop stations, which provide community injury prevention partners the opportunity to educate grade 7/8 students on different injury prevention strategies to use while they are on summer vacation. This year, Summer Safety Days took place on May 1, 2, 3 and 4 at St. Lawrence College. Over 1000 students from 26 local elementary schools attended the program.
