The Town of Niverville has partnered with Community Safety Net to help raise awareness about drug safety. The initiative is targeted at local young people, to help ensure that they have access to the information they need to make smart life choices.

The Recreation Department will be distributing copies of Drug Safety: Smart Choices for Life from the Niverville Arena this fall and winter. The 112-page handbook contains useful information about the dangers of alcohol, tobacco, and illicit drugs. Although geared toward youth, the book also serves as a comprehensive family resource, with tips for both young people and their parents.

The book, which is made available through the support of local businesses and organizations, comes with a free downloadable app for smartphone and tablets.

Community Safety Net is an international organization that has been partnering with community leaders, businesses, and schools since 1989 to produce and distribute award-winning educational resources.
