Through funding from the Connecticut Elks Association, Safe Kids Connecticut provides safety devices and educational materials to the community. In collaboration with Safe Kids volunteers and members of the Connecticut Elks Association, local Safe Kids coalitions may host safety events that provide safety education and materials such as car seats, smoke alarms, carbon monoxide detectors and bike helmets to community members. Typical Safe Kids events include bike rodeos, car seat clinics, safety fairs and other events that bring education directly to the community.
