Child safety campaign

Share this article:

The U.S. Postal Service is ramping up its child safety public service campaign for the beginning of the school year.

Materials targeting pre-kindergarten through second-grade school children are being distributed nationwide this month to more than 9,000 postal facilities as part of the awareness program designed to encourage children to stay out of the path of postal delivery vehicles on the roadway.

The materials include an animated two-minute DVD video, available in English or Spanish, promoting the theme “Smart children stay away from the truck”

“The dangers involving children playing near vehicles is a nationwide problem involving all types of vehicles,” reads a potion of a USPS news release about the program.

Teachers or other school officials interested in having a Postal Service employee visit a school to present the video and other materials should contact their local Postmaster, the USPS said.
