Street Smart reminds teens and adults alike of the dangers of underage drinking, drunk driving, illegal drug use and not wearing seat belts. Taught by certified paramedics, this program helps audiences better understand the consequences of their actions, in turn helping reduce the number of accidents and fatalities each year.
Street Smart engages viewers rather than lecturing or preaching to them. Using factual information, actual medical equipment and demonstrations involving audiences, the paramedics provide a real-life look at the consequences of irresponsible actions. In addition, viewers learn to recognize EMS procedures, which may reduce anxiety in future trauma experiences. This is beneficial not only to the patient, but to first responders, rescue and emergency room personnel.
Street Smart is presented by members of Stay Alive From Education (S.A.F.E.), a non-profit organization created in 1988 by firefighter/paramedics in Miami-Dade County, Florida, dedicated to reducing injuries and fatalities. The Street Smart presentation has been reaching students and military personnel across the country with its powerful message since 2002.
Each year Wisconsin Distributors brings the Street Smart team to local high schools to educate our youth on the consequences of irresponsible decisions often made during the teen years. If your school is interested in hosting S.A.F.E we encourage you to email us today: AbbyB@WisconsinDistributors.com
