The American Red Cross wants to make sure students are safe as they head back to school.

“While safety is a top priority for all students, there are special steps for parents of younger kids and those headed to school for the first time,” said Guy Triano, Regional CEO of the Red Cross Eastern Pennsylvania Region. “Make sure the child knows their phone number, address, how to get in touch with their parents at work, how to get in touch with another trusted adult and how to dial 911.

“Teach children not to talk to strangers or accept rides from someone they don’t know.”
