Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for 15 through
24-year-olds. – National Transportation Safety Board
“Alive at 25” is a video-based 4.5 – hour class taught by law enforcement and first responders. Developed by the National Safety Council, the program teaches important decision-making skills for staying safe both behind the wheel and as passengers.
The Wells Branch MUD and WBNA held the first course in Wells Branch in December and are proud to be hosting this program again on Saturday, May 7, from 8am-12:30pm at the Community Center, 2106 Klattenhoff. Lunch will be provided. Through a grant from State Farm, we’re able to offer the class to participants, ages 15-24, for $10 per person.
Teens who attended the course in December had this to say: “I think this was a really good class that will make me think. Next time I’m in the car with friends I will pay more attention.” “Very interesting, and involved the kids with everything that was going on. Videos were relatable and got the point across while keeping us interested. Very good!”
School’s almost out with a long, hot summer to follow, lots of friends and places to go. Please take a moment to stress to your children what their safety means not only to themselves, but also to everyone around them and encourage them to attend this seminar. Check with your insurance agent as some agents are offering up to a 10% discount for completion of this course. One participant from December reported her rates dropping from $98 a month to $73 because of this course.
Only 25 spots are available. It’s only one Saturday morning and it could change their lives. Register your teen at www.texasaliveteam.org. For questions, call 656-0654.
