Because you and your children are so important to us we have placed a few basic tips to help keep you and your children safe.

  • Walk your neighborhood with your children. Show them safe places they can go in an emergency, like a neighbor’s house, a McGruff Safe House, or an open store. Make sure they are taking the safest route to and from school.
  • Check your neighborhood for areas that threaten children’s safety.
    • Wooded areas.
    • High shrubbery.
    • Abandoned buildings.
    • Bad lighting in certain areas.
  • Make sure children know their full name, address, and phone number and how to make an emergency phone call both from home and at public facilities.
  • Never leave young children home alone, and older children should know how to reach a parent at all times.
  • Thoroughly check the references and background of all daycare and babysitters.
  • Talk to your children about stranger danger and good touch bad touch.
  • Make your children know they can come to you and tell you anything.
  • Always know where your kids are, and whom they are with.
  • Set a good example, remember children learn more by example than words.
