The Great Safety Adventure rolls into Hinesville to educate families on home injuries
Unintentional injuries at home result in an average of nearly 20,000 deaths and 21 million medical visits each year.
The great safety adventure is a 1,000 square foot animated home that unfolds from a semi-tractor truck to create a replica of a living room, kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, and backyard.
Families become safety rangers as they join a quest with tour guides and Rover, the great safety adventure’s home safety hound, to search the house in an effort to locate common safety hazards concentrating in five safety risk areas, slips and falls, poisonings, fires and burns, choking/suffocation and drowning.
The event is set to take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., March 3 at the Lowe’s Store, 735 W Oglethorpe Highway, Hinesville.
The effort was created and launched in 1999 by the Home Safety Council, whose vision is to create safer American homes. Since 1999, the exhibit has reached nearly 750,000 children and parents.
Currently, there are two exhibits traveling across the country making stops in more than 50 towns.
