Life Safety Park Offering Free Activity Bags for Children

Life Safety Park (LSP) wants to help keep you and your family safe—and active—while staying at home during the COVID-19 pandemic. LSP is offering free activity bags for Coppell children between 2-12 years old, which contain fire and life safety activity ideas, coloring books, and a few fun items to help keep your family entertained while sheltering-in-place. The bags will be delivered safely and hygienically to your doorstep by Life Safety Park staff. Bags will be delivered within two business days of request.

To request an activity bag, call 972-462-5373 or email lsp@coppelltx.gov. Please be sure to include your name, address, age of child(ren), and number of bags you are requesting in your message. At this time, offerings are limited to one bag per child, and to those children who live within Coppell and/or CISD boundaries. Alternatively, you may submit a request online via the LSP website, www.LifeSafetyPark.org, through the Activity Bag Request Form found on the homepage.

As many households are now dealing with unusual routines and out-of-the-ordinary circumstances, such as kids home from school and parents working from home, there's greater risk for accidents and fire. One thing all families and households can do is test all smoke alarms in the home. Smoke alarms should be located on every level of the home, in each bedroom, and near all sleeping areas. Test them monthly to make sure they're working. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) also strongly encourages households develop and practice a home escape plan to ensure that everyone knows what to do in a fire and can escape quickly and safely.

Other great fire and life safety resources are available free online through the NFPA:
