At the event you will be able to meet the real-life heroes that that work day in and day out to keep us safe. Can you think of a better way to learn about fire safety than from a SDFD firefighter with a fire engine and rescue equipment on-hand, or from a doctor who specializes in family health and safety?

The following government agencies, non-profits and businesses will be on-site all day sharing safety tips, resources, offering demos and hands on experiences for your family.

2. The most effective way to protect your family is to stay informed & educated.so cal allergy

If you don’t know what to do in an emergency or how to prevent a potentially dangerous
situation, you can’t prevent it.

I know I personally have not had to deal with a severe allergic reaction, but after this event and a visit to the Southern California Food Allergy Institute I will know how to recognize and treat allergic reaction symptoms.

Family Safety Day actually began because one mom took it upon herself to learn CPR, turning a sure to be tragic situation into an inspiring one. Don’t let a tragic situation be the reason you learn something that could potentially save your child’s life.  At the event you can visit the Plunge table for water safety and CPR Demos and more information on CPR classes and where to sign up head to the American Red Cross table!

They are bringing their mobile reptile zoo with 16-18 different reptiles and snakes!

3. Make sure you know what resources, tools, or physical products are available to you, in case you need them.

At the event, we have an incredible lineup of partners that are solely committed to providing support to local families. Some of the partners there you may hope you never need, but knowing about them can make all the difference of a difficult situation. 
Family Safety Day Resource: Trauma Intervention Programs (TIP) of San Diego, Inc. dispatches volunteers to provide emotional first aid to survivors of tragedy in order to ease their immediate suffering and facilitate their healing and long-term recovery.

Children’s Primary Care Medical Group, is donating one National Child I.D. Program Inkless Fingerprint I.D. Kit per family to our event! Families will also receive (1) Emergency Survival Whistle Key Chain from San Diego Moms.

4. Prevention always starts at home!

The goal of this event is to share safety tips and resources in a safe and fun environment. You can teach children to be safe without scaring them – You just need to know how.

Young people are at risk of assault, abduction, and abuse even in caring families, schools, and communities. Skills and knowledge are the keys to keeping kids safe.  The good news is that there are simple and effective ways of teaching children how to protect themselves that will work most of the time.*

Stronghold Family Self-Defense will have ongoing Self-Defense Demos where they will be teaching how to break wrist grips and how to escape holds. These techniques are simple enough for a 3-year-old to try!

5. When it comes to raising a child, it takes a village!

Find families in your community who care not only about the safety of their families, but also about the safety of their communities. You may meet a neighbor you didn’t know existed or find a friend you can count on in an emergency.

The phrase “it takes a village” reflects the proven influence outside individuals and groups have on children.

Date: Saturday, October 1st from 10:30am-1pm
