Support Safe Communities
Join our campaign today!
A donation to Safe Communities will help to make Dane County a safer place! Your financial contribution will make it possible for the effective programs we support in the community such as improving traffic safety through the Slow Down Yard Sign and Stop on Red campaigns; preventing falls with programs like Stepping On, and addressing the drug poisoning epidemic with the MedDrop program as well as the tragedy of suicide by providing QPR (Question Persuade Respond) training; and helping keep kids safe with Safety Education for Children and Walk Our Children to School Week. Promoting these effective projects and programs will increase public awareness about how we can all help save lives in Dane County!
