Geneva children who will be entering first-grade this fall can learn important safety first lessons as part of the City’s annual Risk Watch summer program.
Presented by the Geneva Fire and Police departments, Risk Watch is a weeklong educational session that provides children with fun activities designed to promote safe decision-making skills. Some of the topics covered in Risk Watch include bike and pedestrian safety, personal safety, fall prevention, water safety, electrical safety, and fire and burn prevention.
Four sessions of Risk Watch are being offered to the community at Geneva Fire Department Headquarters Station No. 1:
• Session 1 – 9 to 11 a.m. July 14 to 18
• Session 2 – 1 to 3 p.m. July 14 to 18
• Session 3 – 9 to 11 a.m. July 21 to 25
• Session 4 – 1 to 3 p.m. July 21 to 25
The cost of the class is $20. Registration forms were sent home with current kindergarten students at all Geneva elementary schools this month. The forms, which also are available on the City’s website (see link below) are due by Saturday, May 31. Registration can be dropped off at Fire Station No. 1 or mailed to the Geneva Fire Department, 200 East Side Drive, Geneva, IL 60134.
Space is limited, and sessions become filled quickly. For more information about Risk Watch, please contact Firefighter Rod Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org or call him at 630-232-2530 Ext. 2067.
