Officer Phil Safety Programs from Creative Safety Products
Officer Phil and his colleagues Firefighter Phil and Deputy Phil are characters created by Creative Safety Products, an organization that provides safety lessons for children in elementary schools. Officer Phil teaches lessons about what to do around strangers, fire safety, internet safety, bullying, responding to emergencies, and interacting with authority figures. Officer Phil is a national program that partners with local police and fire departments to reach elementary schools across the country.
Officer Phil’s 30-minute presentations include games, ventriloquism, magic tricks, and other entertainment to engage kids in safety lessons. Animal characters such as Turbo the Turtle, Icy the Penguin, and Ozgood the Owl participate in lessons, too. Each animal offers safety tips for kids about a particular safety topic.
Officer Phil also provides additional resources for kids, parents, and educators online. Other safety lessons available through Officer Phil’s website include medication safety and sports safety. The website also features coloring pages for kids and fun recipes. The kid-friendly recipes have tips for when to ask for help from an adult and when to use extra caution, such as while using knives, opening the oven, or placing pots and pans on the stovetop.
Creative Safety Products has taught millions of children important safety lessons since it was founded in 1975. In many cases, these kids have gone on to use their new safety skills in their communities.
