Luncheon at WSB-TV Previews WorldSafe Summit

Last Thursday, September 28th, Safe America held one of its most successful and largest Safe Communities meetings at WSB-TV. This meeting informed attendees about the major safety issues impacting all of us, daily, whether we are aware or not, and which Safe America will address during its October WorldSafe Summit. Members of over 40 organizations were present at the meeting, prepared to work together to make our communities more safe.
