Delta Air Lines, The Home Depot Assist in Bringing ‘Cooking Can’ Device to the Caribbean (December 14 / San Juan, Puerto Rico) – The Safe America Foundation is working to help Puerto Rican communities be able to cook meals without electricity while the island recovers from the recent Hurricane Maria, which has left over 90% of the island still without power. Safe America is distributing over the next week across Puerto Rico, 1,000 portable non-electric cooking devices – known as ‘Cooking Cans’ – to help communities, neighborhoods and families to return normal cooking habits while the utility industry restores power in Puerto Rico.

We’ve Got a SUPER Idea for Protecting America!
Written by Len Pagano, CEO of Safe America Foundation Atlanta’s Mercedes Benz Stadium will host the upcoming ‘SUPER BOWL’ in February 2019. Our goal: inform 2 million travelers coming to Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson Int’l Airport over the next 4 months how to end problems such as human trafficking. Millions of people travel to Atlanta every month. And with the Super Bowl coming, the Safe America Foundation is working to use its new ‘Safety Zone’ kiosk near the Delta baggage claim area to help travelers learn what to look for – and then what to do if they see something. We’ll also help travelers learn solutions for opioid addiction, cyber security and distracted driving. BE VISIBLE BEFORE 80,000 a DAY!! Starting this November, we’ll staff this booth and provide free advice on how to solve safety problems – and protect lives EVERYWHERE. Your firm or non-profit can help us do ‘serious good’ at ATL and: – Have your logo included on brochures – Be visible on our video screen! – Have content also seen nationally on our web site! ‘Safety Zone’ Opens November 1 Safe America: the Voice Redefining Safety – Invite friends & employees to donate funds at safeamerica.org & protect what’s priceless: […]
Puerto Rico High Schoolers Become ‘Safety Advocates’
Students at Trina Padilla de Sanz High School in Puerto Rico kicked off ‘La Seguridad (BE Safel), Puerto Rico’ safety campaign… with 40 students planning to launch a social media contest this weekend via a new ‘Instagram’ site – Safe America PR. University of Georgia Graduate Student Andrea Briscoe joined Safe America CEO Len Pagano in advising students ‘how to use photos to tell stories and protect lives.’ Ms. Briscoe noted that the next generation needs to be proactive in telling about risks – not waiting til they occur.
Thanks to stories, art drawings and speeches, students presented the importance of being safe on the Internet plus avoiding Vape and Opioids. A video on using drones to fight human trafficking was also premiered. It will be one of a series of videos students plan to create for Safe America in 2020.
National retail firm Target offered Safe America $10,000 in prizes (including drones and digital cameras) that will be awarded next month as students continue to advise friends and classmates on how to improve disaster readiness. The International Association of Emergency Managers (IAEM) and Member Ben Nieves will share more – and will add content on Safe America’s website, also.
