Community Safety Net seeking support for local safety publication


Representatives with Community Safety Net are seeking community support for an emergency safety book aimed at local children and families.

“It’s a safety program that we do every few years in Ponoka,” said John Quigley, a project coordinator for the organization.

“There is an emergency safety book that goes out to local children and families, and all the businesses that help out get featured as Partners in Safety in the front of the safety books and on a custom safety app for the local area.”

Community Safety Net is described as a revolutionary safety awareness and education initiative that creates a network of concerned individuals who want to protect children and help save lives.

“It’s been embraced by thousands of communities in the United States and Canada, forming an extensive safety net that stretches across the continent,” noted the website.

“But the real magic comes from the ability of our resources to increase awareness, which brings communities together for the benefit of children.”

Quigley said the book, which is about 100 pages in length, explores several safety issues that youngsters and families should be aware of.

“In the past, we have worked with the fire department, the RCMP — and various organizations throughout the year,” he said.

“When the campaign is complete, we send the safety materials to the partnering organization, which distributes them to the kids and their families.”
