Please do not be late for your class, and please DON’T be a “No Show”. That is a seat that could have been filled by another willing student. Please respect that all our instructors volunteer their time and material to teach at Safety Fest.
As always, we could not do this event without all of the support and contributions from our Founding Partners, Community Partners, Sponsors, Vendors, Instructors, and all our volunteers. Be sure to recognize these community advocates of safety for all of the great support they have provided over the years.
