Experience the Great Safety Adventure

LogoThe Great Safety Adventure is a traveling exhibit sponsored by Lowe's Home Improvement Warehouse that teaches basic home safety skills to help children, families and communities learn about four important home safety risk areas: fire and burn prevention; falls prevention; choking, suffocation and strangulation prevention; and poison prevention.

Here's How It Works

Roughly the size of a small house, the Great Safety Adventure is a 1,200 square foot animated home that unfolds from two semi-tractor trailer trucks to create a replica of a living room, kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and backyard. Children and parents become "safety rangers" as they join a quest with tour guides and Rover, the Great Safety Adventure’s Home Safety Hound, to search the house for common safety hazards. The adventure begins when the children enter the oversized front door and gather in the living room. Once inside the exhibit, the "safety rangers" are on the lookout for hazards such as poisonous cleaning supplies in easy-to-reach cabinets; protruding pot handles on the stove; and an electric hairdryer treacherously close to a sink with running water.

Each time a safety hazard is identified, children are prompted to say "Code Red Rover, Grown-Up Come Over" reinforcing the importance of involving an adult in correcting home hazards. Children also learn the importance of having working smoke alarms in their homes, and to design and practice a fire escape plan with their families. The adventure ends when a smoke alarm sounds and actual smoke fills the hallway outside of Rover’s bedroom. Rangers have learned Rover’s fire escape plan moments before, so they are quickly able to crawl through the smoky hallway to safety outside.
