Save-A-Life – This is a statewide smoke alarm distribution program that works in partnership with local fire departments. Each fire department is eligible for up to 50 free smoke alarms each year if they are matched with 50 alarms purchased with local funding. Alarms are distributed to low-income families with children.

Brittany Project – This is a program in which life jackets are available for loan at most state and federal lakes in Oklahoma. Named for 4-year-old Brittany Mobley, who drowned at Lake Thunderbird, the program began when Brittany’s mother, Dona Williams, partnered with Oklahoma SAFE KIDS to obtain funding for loaner life jackets and kiosks on which the jackets hang. At some of the U.S. Corps of Engineers lakes, the jackets are available at the gatehouses.

Please Be Seated – Initiated in 1992, this program allows concerned citizens to report moving vehicles carrying unrestrained children. Patterned after a program in Virginia, the program allows motorists to carry Please Be Seated postcards in their vehicles and use them to report non-compliant drivers. The postcards request the tag number of the vehicle, date and time of reported offense, and number and ages of unrestrained children. The owner of the vehicle receives a packet with information on the importance of buckling up children and child passenger safety resources. Please Be Seated is purely educational, and non-compliant drivers are not reported to law enforcement.

Resource Library – More than 100 videos are available for loan from SAFE KIDS’ resource center. Borrowing is free, with the borrower simply paying for return postage. Resources may be checked out for up to two weeks, with a limit of three resources at a time. In addition to videos, the resource center offers audio tapes, books (for children and adults), CD’s, children’s games, puppet shows (complete with puppets and portable theater), etc.  If you would like to see a listing of what is available, please click here.
