Free Interactive Safety Posters!
Interactive posters about general safety, making decisions and emergency
preparedness are available for kids ages 5-12 years old. There are safety
activities with a particular focus on falls, fire, safety equipment and
calling 911. When kids have finished the activities and filled out the
postcard that is enclosed with the poster, they can send in their postcard
to get a Safety All-Star prize package delivered to them in the mail.
Note: Kids who return the postcard before June 30, 2000 will be entered in
a drawing to win Mariners tickets. Those who return the postcard between
July 1, 2000 and November 30, 2000 will be entered in a drawing to win a
Mariners baseball cap.
If you would like free posters for your organization, please contact Megan
Murphy at (206) 527-5797 or
mmurp2 at chmc.org. Posters are available by the box (200 per box).
Be Smart, Be Safe, Be a Safety All-Star is the theme of this recently formed
campaign between Children's, SAFECO and the Seattle Mariners. The
underlying approach builds on parent role-modeling, skills, confidence and
beliefs, and on a child's ability to make good decisions.
Free Drowning Prevention Posters or Postcards!
Posters and postcards for adolescents on wearing life jackets are available.
The slogan is "Know the water. Know your limits. Wear a life jacket."
The postcards have the same look as the posters but have additional drowning
prevention tips on the back.
Posters and postcards come in packs of 5 or 25. There is also a
reproducible tip sheet. If you would like any of these items for your
organization, please contact Megan Murphy at (206) 527-5797 or
