Hi everyone! I’m the Safety Kid. I recently went to British Columbia to visit with my friend Mountain Kid. Yes, you guessed right. Mountain Kid lives in the mountains. I wanted to make sure that my friend was safe.
From what I could see on my visit with Mountain Kid, things were pretty safe. Mountain Kid knew to stay away from fast flowing waters. He knew it was very dangerous and he knew that the water could sweep him away within seconds.
Mountain Kid knew to wear proper safety gear when he went for walks in the forest. He also knew enough to wear the proper clothing. Even though it is spring, the weather in the mountains could change at any second. Mountain weather is very unpredictable.
I had a lot of fun spending time with Mountain Kid. I was very glad that he was conscience of his own safety and also of the his surroundings. Mountain Kid summed it all up quite well.
“Because I live in the mountains all by myself,” said Mountain Kid. “I can’t really afford to take a risk with my own safety because taking such a risk could be the difference between life and death.”
