Contest focuses on emergency preparedness
American Red Cross San Diego/Imperial Counties Chapter and San Diego Gas & Electric have launched SAFE San Diego Youth Challenge.
In collaboration with KUSI-TV and the San Diego Padres, the challenge will educate area families about emergency preparedness and engage students to better prepare their family for an emergency. K-12 students are encouraged to share a story of how their family is prepared for an emergency and for a chance to win Padres tickets. Ten monthly winners will be chosen. Additionally each month, one lucky student will be named “Safety Ace” and win the grand prize of sharing a Padres suite with friends and family.
The SAFE San Diego Youth Challenge will run through October 31 and will focus on a new safety topic each month: July — earthquake safety, August — water safety and September/October — public and fire safety
