Safety Activity Checkpoints

Safety Activity Checkpoints discuss the steps to take in advance of an activity. Not every category is listed in the Safety Activity Checkpoints, and not every activity includes these categories. Volunteers should also consult Volunteer Essentials for additional tips and GSDAOT policies and procedures when planning activities. Be sure to read "Using the Safety Activity Checkpoints" for specific instructions on using Safety Activity Checkpoints. Then review the checkpoints for the specific activity your girls plan to do.
