EDISON, NJ — The Safety Ambassador Program at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital is a learning experience that helps children understand the importance of practicing safe behaviors at home, in the car, and at play. The Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital’s Injury Prevention Program teaches key safety messages and presentation skills to juniors and seniors from Middlesex County high schools.
 
Once trained, the Safety Ambassadors develop lesson plans and teach second graders about four important safety topics: How to Prevent Falls, Pedestrian Safety, Safety In and Around Cars, and Proper Use of Helmets in Wheeled Sports.
 
This year’s Wardlaw-Hartridge Safety Ambassadors are seniors Cameron Cabrera of Carteret, Brooke Sutton of Westfield, Claude Djan of Scotch Plains and Lauren Yates of Piscataway and juniors Samantha Anastasiou of Scotch Plains, Scott Hargrove of Fanwood and Manasvinee Mayil Vahanan of Edison.
