Risk Watch© Safety Program

Sunnyside Preschool is proud to partner with Lake Stevens Fire District #8 to offer Risk Watch Safety throughout the school year. In addition, Sunnyside's owner, Cindy Brengman and Robert Marshall of Lake Stevens Fire received from the National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) the prestigious Ralph H. Jensen Partners in Public Education Award in 2002 for implementing the program into the Lake Stevens Preschools and School District that resulted in lives saved and injuries prevented.

Risk Watch© is a comprehensive injury and death prevention curriculum, developed for pre-school through grade eight children by a panel of respected safety and injury prevention experts and distributed and managed by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA).

Risk Watch© addresses the eight major risk factors for children. With proper education, children can learn to be safer and prevent injuries. Risk Watch is designed to do just that. Risk Watch is a sequential, comprehensive program of instruction that builds on prior knowledge.

Risk Watch© curriculum covers these eight major risk factors that kill and injure the most kids:

  • MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY
  • FIRE AND BURN PREVENTION
  • CHOKING, SUFFOCATION, AND STRANGULATION PREVENTION
  • POISONING PREVENTION
  • FALLS PREVENTION
  • FIREARM INJURY PREVENTION
  • BIKE AND PEDESTRIAN SAFETY
  • WATER SAFETY

Personal safety is a value that is learned at an early age. The earlier a child is introduced to the concept of personal safety and injury prevention, the more effectively injuries and death can be prevented.

RISK WATCH© is the thoroughly tested and proven educational program that will get results in prevention of childhood injuries and deaths.
