May is Bike Month!

altWhen the weather warms up and people get outside in May, TMACOG takes a month-long focus on bicycles and active transportation. A bicycle can be effective transportation in our region. Most people work within nine miles of their home which is a comfortable 45-minute ride for most people – even people who don’t ride often. Combine your bike with a TARTA bus and you can really get around. Every TARTA bus has an easy-to-use bike rack on front.

Automobile users are usually respectful and careful around bicyclists who know how to ride in traffic. For a safe ride, bicyclists must follow the same rules of the road as a car: respect traffic signals, ride with traffic and not against it, signal your turns. For added protection, cyclists should always wear a helmet, have the required lights and reflectors on the bike, and wear bright clothing. Learn Ohio laws regarding bicycling in Ohio at the Ohio Bicycle Federation website.

Safety Town

SAFETY TOWN is an organized program of safety education for CHILDREN ENTERING KINDERGARTEN (or entereing first grade if they have not previously attended).  SAFETY TOWN, a city built to the scale of the child, is the setting in which safety awareness is taught and practiced.  Teachers and police officers, with the assistance of teenagers, will cover such topics as pedestrian, motorist, bus, stranger, police, fire, railroad, home, and playground safety.  Movies, songs, poems, games, visits to the police and fire stations, and practice inside SAFETY TOWN itself will complement the daily classroom activities.  Parents are not expected to stay with their children during SAFETY TOWN and children do not need to bring any type of equipment. Children are welcomed from Oregon and the surrounding communities.

Oregon Safety Town is sponsored by the Oregonian Club and is presented in cooperation with the City of Oregon, Oregon Police Department, Oregon Fire Department and Oregon City Schools.  Safety Town is held at Starr Elementary School (3230 Starr Ave).

Dates for 2015 Safety Town will be June 9th through June 19th (excluding the weekend).  There are two sessions.  Session 1 is from 8:00 AM to 10:00 AM.  Session 2 is from 10:30 Am to 12:30 PM.
