“Buckle Up for Safety Program” Encourages Middle School Students to be Proactive

Program Partners Hope to Teach Middle School Students Benefits of Car Safety Belts
Posted on 09/11/2017

Cabell County Schools, the Cabell County Sheriff’s Department, and the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration are partnering together this year to launch a “Buckle Up for Safety” campaign aimed at middle school aged students. 

The safety of children is a primary concern for all of the organizations involved, and as a result, the partners are running this year-long campaign that is focused on student involvement, positive reinforcement, and education about the importance of using a safety belt. 

“The use of a safety belt is extremely important in making sure that your child is protected while they are a passenger in a motor vehicle, and greatly reduces the likelihood of injury or fatality during a crash,” says David Tackett, Administrative Assistant over Secondary Education for Cabell County Schools.  “It is also the law in the state of West Virginia.” 

During the campaign, students will receive educational materials at school.  The school resource officers will also be speaking with students throughout the year about the importance of buckling up for safety.  Parent participation during this campaign is greatly encouraged. 

“We are excited about the impact this campaign can have on the safety of middle school aged students in Cabell County,” adds Mr. Tackett.  “Please, ‘Never Give up Until they Buckle Up’.”
