In 2013, Capital Insurance Group is continuing to bring the very latest in child and family safety information and practices to communities in California and Nevada at our Community Safety Saturday™ events .

“Safety and security are no accidents,” declares Sandie Borthwick, Corporate Marketing Manager for Capital Insurance Group (CIG). “In 2012, we held four very successful Community Safety Saturday™ events where parents learned critical life-saving information for children, in and out of the car. This year, we are continuing to bring the very latest in child and family safety information and practices to even more communities! CIG is partnering with our independent Insurance Advisors in California and Nevada to offer value-added services from The Protector Network®, and to hold six fun-packed Community Safety Saturday events in 2013.”

CIG is dedicated to child, family and community safety and creates fun, interactive events that attract hundreds of local families. CIG teams up with our local Insurance Advisors and non-profit organizations to host each event. In addition to receiving valuable information that helps to protect the entire family, parents are able to proactively increase their children’s safety awareness through several important on-site activities. Here are just a few of the highlights of this important event:

  • State Highway Patrol and other law enforcement organizations conduct a free child car-seat safety inspection station.
  • The KlaasKids Foundation hosts the KlaasKids Print-A-Thon, which provides Digital Photo ID & Fingerprint Kits for every child. Parents receive a free DNA collection kit, child safety tips, and a 9-point plan on what to do if their child disappears.
  • The local fire department brings a fire engine and hands out fire-safety coloring books and other giveaways.
  • American Red Cross provides information about child and adult emergency preparedness.
  • Local police and sheriff departments provide valuable safety information and bring their squad cars for display.
  • A radio station holds a live remote broadcast, providing music and prizes.
  • CIG and each agency provide exciting prizes and giveaways!

Adds Borthwick, "We are very proud to partner with community safety-oriented public services and our CIG Insurance Advisors to bring this important event to local communities. Community Safety Saturday was born from our concern and commitment to keep children and families safe. This is at the heart of what CIG is all about.”
