Car-verses-pedestrian accidents remain the second leading cause of unintentional-injury-related death among children ages 5 to 14. With 70 percent of all children in this age group riding bicycles, those injuries are mounting as well.
The world is not always a safe place for little ones. Fire kills about 500 children ages 14 and younger every year in America. And, according to the latest statistics from the National SAFE KIDS Campaign and the United States Fire Administration, the leading cause of residential fire-related death and injury among children ages 9 and younger is carelessness.
Lessons will be interactive and fun, making learning a joy - for both children and their adult caregivers - and the message of prevention and safety is one they will carry into their own homes and communities.
Nana’s Fire and Safety School offers a fun and exciting place to teach everyone about the kinds of accidents that hurt and kill America’s children every day.
The school focuses on issues like fire prevention, bicycle and pedestrian safety, motor vehicle safety for children as passengers and the dangers of speaking to strangers. A tiny village being built at the heart of Permian Basin Regional Training Center, the school will be sized for little learners, with streets and buildings set at their level, all sponsored through generous donations from area businesses and civic organizations.
Let us show you how. For more information, contact us.
Your donation helps build the foundations of an education program at Nana’s Fire and Safety School that will help to protect generations of children from senseless injury and death.
Under construction now, Nana’s Fire and Safety is seeking partners in an exciting new educational venue for Eddy County. From corporate sponsorships that build our walls to individual donations that help fund our educational programming, every penny counts.
