The Great Safety Adventure Travels to Louisville

The Great Safety Adventure traveling home safety exhibit is educating Louisville area children on how to avoid common household injuries.

The exhibit is roughly the size of a small house, a nearly 1,000 square-foot animated home unfolds from a semi-tractor truck to create a replica of a living room, kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and backyard.

Children and parents 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. The Great Safety Adventure concentrates on five safety risk areas: (1) slips and falls; (2) poisonings; (3) fires and burns; (4) choking/suffocation and (5) drowning.

The Great Safety Adventure traveling home safety exhibit willl appear in the following locations:
