Safe Zones Locations

safe zones Locations

The Safe Zones Locations Program was designed to help protect you when you feel that acts of bullying or any type of violence is being directed at you. These acts may occur as you travel to and from school or just when you are out for a walk.

Signs will be posted on designated municipal locations and private businesses indicating that those sites are Safe Zones Locations. Safe Zones Locations decals will be placed on front doors (ONLY) to identify that this location is a safe place to seek help.

Please note that any building that has our decal on display has been approved by Safe Zones and has met up to our highest standards.

The Safe Zones Locations  Program is just one more way that Safe Zones is helping address the issue of bullying and aggression beyond the classroom walls.
