In the face of escalating crimes against children and their families, along with increased safety risks for children home during the summer break, the Livonia Passport to Safety has become an important community event for hundreds of local residents seeking safety information and training from industry experts and safety network members and partners.
In late May, the Michigan State Police Computer Crimes Unit, Livonia Police and Fire Departments, and Livonia Public Schools, along with a group of civic and corporate sponsors held the eighth annual Passport to Safety Event at the Livonia Police and Fire Department Complex.
Every year, the Livonia Police and Fire Departments look forward to helping coordinate this kids safety day in the community. The event’s main objective is to provide the best possible safety information for families and their children. Sgt. Patrick Moug of the Crime Prevention Department for the Livonia Police Department explains, “There are possible dangers everywhere and we want these kids to be prepared.”
As members of the community, Passport To Safety has been a great annual opportunity to provide safety information for both parents and children in an educational, fun and entertaining setting.
Throughout the event, thousands of children visited booths to learn about important safety topics and have their safety passports stamped. The educational safety areas included:
- Bike Safety
- 911 Training
- Computer Safety
- Automobile Safety
- Food Safety
- Fire Safety
- Got 2B Safe
- Water Safety
There was also an all new station focused on Earth Safety. Aluminum, cardboard and other post-consumer waste was recycled as part of the Passport to Safety event.
In addition to the activity stations, Radio Disney AM910 performed their D-Tour, and the CAPA students from Livonia Public School’s Creative and Performing Arts High School performed on the main stage. Other forms of entertainment included a K-9 Police Dog demonstration, Andy the Ambulance, the Allstate Fire Dog character and a Fire Safety dress-up area where children dressed up as firefighters and other characters.
What are some ways that you and/or your family are staying safe this summer?
