Safety Village Hosts "Mascot Safety Summit"
It was mascot madness at the Safety Village on Tuesday when some of Cobb County’s favorite mascots got together for a “Mascot Safety Summit” and celebrated Wattson the Cobb EMC safety hawk, who is having a birthday at the end of the month. Students from Mt. Bethel Christian Academy and Kennesaw Charter School joined the fun and got to see a smoke alarm demonstration, fire extinguisher training and learn about water safety.
“Safety education is our primary goal and mission here at the Safety Village," said Director Allison Carter. "Kids and adults of all ages relate to mascots and today was a special day as we had ten join us. They were from various organizations and many related to safety. What better way to engage kids than to see our own mascots joining in the safety program.”
Mascots joining the celebration include:
“Wattson” the Cobb EMC safety hawk
“Hawkeye” the Cobb County School Transportation Safety mascot
“Digger Dog” Georgia 811’s Goodwill Ambassador for Safe Digging
“Gutsy the Flying Fox”
“Sparky the Fire Safety Dog”
“Dr. WellBee” Wellstar’s “Ambassador of WellBeeing”
Chattahooche Nature Center mascot “Kingfisher”
Atlanta Braves mascot “Blooper”
“Dewey” the Cobb County Library System mascot
The Safety Village provides the highest quality safety education and training available. This effort enables our citizens to help and protect themselves and others from accidental death, injury and destruction of property. The vision is a sustainable Cobb County Safety Village that builds a safer community through advocacy and education.
