Second Annual Safety Education Summit

On March 14, 2019, the Florida School for the Deaf and the Blind (FSDB) hosted the second Annual Safety Education Summit in the Kramer Bus Loop on campus. This school-wide educational event is designed to promote and provide relevant personal safety information for youth and adolescents. Over 500 students were in attendance for the Summit, along with their teachers and school officials.

Sixteen local safety partners participated in the annual program sharing their knowledge and experience, supporting one of the FSDB core values–Safety and Security. Before the Summit, students reviewed a slide presentation that gave an overview of the participating agencies and the services they perform in the community. This activity prepared students to gain additional knowledge of services provided by these agencies and enabled them to ask safety and career-oriented questions during the Summit.
