Safety First for Adults is a free, five-week program designed to provide safety tips to adults with developmental disabilities who live and work in the community.

Students may attend the Safety First Class more than once; however, the decision to register for a repeat class is made on a case-by-case basis with the class coordinator. Please register early.
