October is National Bullying Prevention Month @ October is National Bullying Prevention Month
Oct 1 all-day

October is National Bullying Prevention Month, and, according to new BSA data, Generation Z believes bullying is the biggest issue facing their generation and the number one issue they want to solve.

As a Scout parent and/or leader, you know that, given the Scout Law, the BSA’s anti-bullying education, and Scouts’ daily Good Turns, Scouts are among the most prepared to take on bullying prevention. While Scouts pledge to lend a helping hand at all times, their peers may not always know who those Scouts are or that Scouts are important allies in the effort against bullying.

That’s why we are asking all Scouts to wear their Scouting uniform to school on October 16th to make it easy for their classmates to find people they can count on for a kind word; a lunch buddy; or a resource to help them recognize, safely respond to, and report all types of bullying. The goal is that once other students know who the Scouts are, they will feel comfortable reaching out to those individuals whenever they need a friend.

This effort will also serve as a visual reminder within each community that Scouting – with guiding principles like being kind, helpful, and friendly – is an invaluable resource for youth, schools, and society as a whole.

How to Participate:

Ask all Scouts in your family, pack, troop, ship or crew to proudly wear their uniform to school on October 16th and remind them to show the power of kindness by reaching out to classmates to make sure everyone feels welcome.
In October, share inspirational stories that showcase how Scouts or the Scouting program has helped combat bullying. Use the hashtag #AScoutIsKind.
Check out the BSA’s bullying awareness information, and share the uplifting stories from our official social media pages on October 16.
Help curtail cyberbullying by encouraging Scouts who have parental permission to use social media to send supportive and uplifting comments and messages to classmates on October 16th… and every other day.

Amarillo Fire Department: Fall Safety Town event @ Fall Safety Town event
Oct 1 @ 9:30 am – 2:30 pm

Monday, September 30 through Friday, October 4, Amarillo Fire Department will be hosting its Fall Safety Town event. The event will be 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., each day and will be held at Randall County Fire Station, 1111 E. Loop 335. Over 5,000 students, from across the Texas Panhandle, will be attending the event throughout the week.

Safety Town is a partnership among over 15 different local agencies (listed below), offering a unique, fun and hands on approach at safety education for children. This innovative event is a field trip opportunity that is open to all schools in the Texas Panhandle.

AFD hosts two Safety Towns during the school year. The Fall Safety Town is exclusively for 3rd
– 5th grade classes. An additional Safety Town is scheduled for May, 2020, which will be hosted for Kindergarten – 2nd grade classes. Our first Safety Town was held in May 2019 and saw nearly 4,000 students.

Not only is this event a fun and unique opportunity for students to interact with local first responders and emergency providers, but the event solves multiple logistic obstacles associated with trying to provide important safety messages to the growing number of students in Amarillo Independent School District, Canyon Independent School District and rural school districts across our region. Safety Town also provides a safe and sterile environment for students to interact with first responders, see their equipment and learn about community service.

Media and City Leaders are invited to attend this event. This event is only open to schools and registration for next week’s event is closed. Interviews will be conducted at the event by Amarillo Fire Department’s Public Information Officer. Please direct any inquiries to this office, 806.378.9340.

Participating Agencies:
Amarillo Fire Department, Randall County Fire Department, Amarillo Police Department, Randall County Sheriff’s Office, Lif’eStar, Amarillo Medical Services, Texas Forest Service, Amarillo Office of’Emergency Services, National Weather Service, Xcel, ATMOS, Amarillo Parks & Recreation, Texas DPS, YXDOT, AECC, Potter-Randall 911
