Safe Kids Greater South Haven brings “Save a Life Tour” to Local High Schools

Safe Kids Greater South Haven is helping educate area high school students about the dangers and potentially life-altering consequences of distracted and impaired driving. The program is called SALT- the Save a Life Tour. SALT provides high intensity videos, victim stories and an interactive demonstration which simulates the effects of impaired and distracted driving. This helps show the Student participates in SALT simulation potentially deadly consequences resulting from poor choices and decisions.

Safe Kids Greater South Haven presented SALT to South Haven and Covert High Schools earlier this year, and will bring the program to Bangor High School on December 2. “SALT really engages the students and provides them with realistic scenarios they could find themselves in,” says Pam Ford, coordinator of Safe Kids Greater South Haven. “We hope that students will use this experience to make good decisions when deciding whether or not to get behind the wheel and while they are driving.”

Safe Kids Greater South Haven is part of Bronson South Haven’s commitment to child safety and injury prevention and is supported by Bronson Health Foundation. “Bronson Health Foundation is proud to fund our Safe Kids program in the South Haven area,” says Terry Morrow, vice president of development. “The generosity of our donors allows us to offer the SALT programming free of charge to the three high schools.”

“Helping promote safety among children in our community is Safe Kids’ top priority,” says Ford. “This program addresses one of the biggest dangers teenagers may face. We all want to see our children remain safe and on a path to vibrant futures.”
