Winter Safety 

While winter is a great season for outdoor activities, snow can bring both fun and danger for children. Snow plows and snow clearing equipment are often a big and potentially dangerous draw for younger children. The City’s winter safety awareness program is designed to keep children safe around snow clearing equipment and during winter play.  Safey Snowplow is the City’s winter safety mascot, and every year he teaches children in grades K-6 important safety messages.
