The Red Deer Safety City Society has won an Injury Control Champion award.

The honour comes from the Alberta Centre for Injury Control and Research at the University of Alberta’s School of Public Health, which named Safety City because of its commitment to injury control in everyday work.

Safety City society president Don Rathgeber, board member Shelley Dallas-Smith and executive director Judy Douglas accepted the honour at the recent Injury Control in Alberta Awards ceremony.

The non-profit Red Deer Safety City Society offers injury prevention programs to about 3,000 children aged four to 12 each year.

The award will be on display at the society’s annual general meeting on Nov. 20. Reports on the past year’s programs and finances will be made as well as elections held for vacant boards of directors positions. Facility tours are also available. The event begins at 7 p.m. at Safety City, located at 3030 55th St.
