Group activities and role-playing are key components to this workshop.

This workshop, designed by the Ottawa Safety Council, is geared to help children recognize potentially dangerous situations and develop street-smart personal safety tools.

The idea of a family password will be introduced, and a family emergency plan worksheet is provided.
