Safety Education -- Schools and Organizations
SAFE ROUTES TO SCHOOL
Representatives of the Grand Traverse County Road Commission have been involved with the Safe Routes to School Program for a number of years.
We assisted in preparing a grant application for funds for a project at the West Middle School. A route was constructed in 2012 from Wyatt Road to the school.
SCHOOL BUS AND ROAD SAFETY
Safety is important to everyone at the Road Commission. We enjoy teaching young children about safety, whether it's waiting for the bus or playing after school, about what to do when you approach a snow plow performing winter maintenance and creating a cloud of snow.
Our employees can come on site to your school or meeting with a full-dress snowplow to give a first-hand experience of the massiveness of the equipment.
Topics include the importance of staying away from the snowplows throwing snow, not playing on or tunneling in the snowbanks along the road, pedestrian safety, traffic signal operation, safely crossing roads and what to do when a snow plow is in your lane!
Coming to our office will afford attendees a chance to see our HUGE sand piles and salt barn, view an engineering office, check out our mechanics' shop, our football stadium-size garage with trucks and conduct some career exploration activities in a variety of areas.
One of the favorite traditions is to have a picture taken - like the one above. Kids of all ages and kids at heart all like to huddle under the plow blade, get inside the truck, sit behind the wheel and toot the loud horn.
Call us at 922-4848 to set up a visit. We'd love to meet you!
