SAFE & HEALTHY COMMUNITIES HAS IDENTIFIED FOUR AREAS OF NEED IN OUR COMMUNITY
The strength of Safe & Healthy Communities is the commitment of its volunteer committees who identify, create, and implement a coordinated approach to addressing community safety and reducing injuries. Each committee works independently, as part of the larger organization, to offer programs and services that met the specific needs of residents of the Assiniboia area.
The organization's four safety areas were identified with the direct involvement of the community during strategic planning events and feedback.

The Transportation Safety Committee addresses safety concerns in all areas of transportation including motor vehicles and distracted driving, bike and helmet safety, pedestrian injury prevention, and proper car seat usage.
Fall protection is critical to prevent life-threatening injuries on worksites, farms, and among our senior population. The Fall Protection Committee aims to provide key strategies and programs to our community members that can aid them in preventing avoidable falls and resulting injuries.
The School Programs Committee addresses common safety concerns and hazards among school aged children and youth from poison prevention initiatives to activities for mental health and well-being. This committee includes the active involvement of local parents working to make our community safe for children of all ages.
Our local Substance Use Committee takes a harm-reduction approach to providing education and resources on the topic of substance use. The committee seeks to reduce the harmful effects of substance use in our community by offering a spectrum of services.
