Travel Safety (K-12)
Students of all ages partake in travel for school, whether heading to and from the school itself, going on field trips, or studying abroad at locations around the world. In addition to the safety concerns of traveling domestically, traveling abroad presents even more concerns that need addressed. Besides being in unfamiliar surroundings, students traveling abroad may be faced with culture and language barriers that may hinder safety should emergencies arise. Similarly, should the unthinkable occur, students may find themselves cut off from both their local acquaintances and their families and friends back home. Therefore, preparing before any kind of travel (and staying informed while traveling abroad) is essential.
