As the new school year approaches, the Omaha Professional Fire Fighters Association, Local 385 would like to remind the community of important safety measures for a safe and smart school year.

  • Pick a backpack that is the correct size, has padded back/shoulder straps and has reflective material
  • Use extra caution and safely share roads with school buses, pedestrians and bicyclists
  • Always use the crosswalk when one is available
  • Remind teen drivers to stay off their cell phones when traveling to school

These tips were adapted from the National Safety Council.
