Frequently Asked Questions
about "Street Smart" Presentations

What is Street Smart and SAFE?

Stay Alive From Education (S.A.F.E.) presenters of "Street Smart" is a non-profit organization dedicated to making young adults aware of the dangers of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, texting and/or e mailing while driving, not wearing seat belts, and the trauma associated with these dangers. The goal of S.A.F.E. is to offer information that will allow the audience to make rational decisions concerning their safety and well being, thus reducing injuries and fatalities, giving them the opportunity to become responsible and healthy adults.

The "Street Smart" program takes the audience into the real-life drama experienced by firefighter/paramedics as they work to save the lives of individuals who have made poor choices when it comes to drinking or using drugs, texting and driving, and the non-compliance of seat belts. Featuring photos and descriptions of real-life trauma incidents, "Street Smart" is a no-holds-barred presentation that gets students involved. The paramedics lead a discussion on the importance of students making responsible decisions concerning their safety that compels them to participate. "Street Smart" is not a lecture. It is a real-life view of their options.

We will normally be able to set up in 15 minutes but like to allow about 30 minutes prior to the start time to get everything set and tested.

What do I need to provide?

You need to provide a power source, table strong enough for someone to lay on, a screen for the powerpoint to be showed on, and 2 chairs. We bring the computer, projector, EMS equipment, sound system and mics. If you have your own sound and we can use it, we will need lapel mics and not handhelds.

What is the best venue for the "Street Smart" presentation?

Theaters and auditoriums are the best. Gymnasiums are the worst venue to use due to the inability to control the lights and sound problems. The "Street Smart" program cannot be done outdoors due to the powerpoint.

Can I film the presentation?

No, the "Street Smart" presentation is copyrighted and cannot be filmed. If you would like to film portions or photograph portions of the presentation please ask the presenters to find out what is allowed and what is not. Basically none of the images in the powerpoint are allowed to be copied.

Can I invite the media?

We strongly encourage media coverage and the instructors are available before and after the presentation to do interviews. Please keep that in mind that if you need us to move venues or have tight times in between presentations so that there is enough time for interviews.

Can I broadcast the presentation to another location?

No. On occasion people have problems with the information that is presented and the instructors are trained to deal with these problems. They would not be available if the presentation is broadcast to a remote location and would not be available to deal with that. The program is also designed to be seen live and tends to lose some impact when it is not seen in person.
