Safety projects input sought

Safe Communities Rainy River District wants to continue to keep safety a priority locally.
As such, it is hosting a meeting this Tuesday (April 15) from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. for community partners and anyone interested in getting involved in some safety initiatives.

“I’m hoping to make some plans for a group project,” said Safe Communities chair Linda Plumridge.
“I’m hoping people will come with ideas.”
For instance, Plumridge sees that texting while driving is becoming a significant safety issue and she’s been thinking of ways to bring awareness to the problem.
“There are lots of things out there to bring awareness to safety,” she remarked, adding a photo-voice project also might be something to consider.
Safe Communities promotes injury prevention and safety promotion locally, as well as supports area groups focused on safety, such as Safe Grad and the First Responders program at Fort High.
“Anyone who has any interest in this is welcome to come,” Plumridge said.
The meeting will be held in the boardroom at the ambulance garage on Scott Street.
