Representatives from Oswego County Opportunities’ Services to Aid Families (SAF) Program came out to the fifth annual Oswego County Public Safety Day on Saturday, August 3. They shared information about prevention, intervention, advocacy and education services that the program offers to victims of domestic and dating violence, sexual assault and stalking.

SAF works to raise awareness and improve understanding about this devastating issue which impacts individuals, children, families and communities. Changing behaviors, respecting personal boundaries and practicing healthy communication with children are just a few tactics to help create a safer community. To get free and confidential help, call SAF’s 24/7 hotline at 315-342-1600.

Representatives from the Oswego County Fire Coordinator’s Office were also at hand to teach participants how to exit a fire with the use of their newly updated fire safety trailer. To learn more about fire safety, call 315-349-8800.
