Awards & Accolades

GET SAFE® has done some pretty cool things over the years and has been formally recognized for outstanding service in our community. Not only are we awesome while we're teaching, we have a proven ability to write, receive, implement, and report on grant activities from multiple levels of governmental and philanthropic sources. At the end of the day, we do it for the people in our community. The awards, donuts, cookies, fist bumps, and high-fives are just a bonus.
