The idea of continuous risk reduction inspired the motto of National Safety Month, “Safety: It takes all of us." National Safety Month encourages spotting hazards early, evaluating their risk and removing or controlling them before harm is done. We have outlined four weeks of safety measures you can take this June because a little effort today has the potential to prevent tragedy tomorrow.
Every state nationwide has experienced severe weather. Tornadoes, thunderstorms, floods, winter storms and hurricanes pose extreme threats to our communities. Although some communities are more at risk than others, everyone is at risk of severe weather and should take steps to prepare.
In the first annual Be the Face of Smart911 photo contest, we put out a call to everyone with a Safety Profile to submit a photo and tell us in 1 sentence why they created their profile. Entries were narrowed down to 20 finalists which were opened up to a public vote to determine 4 winners. Here are the 2013 Winners and Finalists.
