SAFETY?

A REASON TO CELEBRATE? YES!
 

Many people may think of it as boring or old fashioned, but safety really is something to celebrate! June is National Safety Month and the National Safety Council has a slate of fun and free events aimed at allowing some dust to collect on your otherwise always handy first aid kit.
 

CAR SEAT CHECK UP
June 11 • 10 a.m. – 1 p.m.
Alegent Health Bergen Mercy 7500 Mercy Rd.

Do your car seats meet safety standards? Are they a good fit for your vehicle? Have you installed them properly for a safe, secure ride? Certified car seat consultants will have all the answers.
 

BUCKLE UP STENCIL DAY
June 21
Employers, retailers, schools and other businesses are encouraged to leverage the “buckle up” message by incorporating painted stencils at the exits of their parking lots. Stencils will be available for your use, or the NSC will even come out and paint them for you. It’s a message that lasts year round. Contact the National Safety Council to have their paint team come to your location.
 

T’AI CHI DEMONSTRATION
June 22 • 10 a.m. – 11 a.m.
Security National Bank 101st & Pacific streets

PRESCRIPTION DRUG TAKE BACK EVENT
June 26 • 11 a.m. – 1 p.m.
