SAFETY PROCEDURES

Say No! to UXO

DND UXO and Legacy Sites Program

 

The Need

When local hazards pose a risk to children, one of the best ways to protect them is to teach hazard avoidance in a Schools Outreach Program.  That’s what the DND UXO and Legacy Sites Program decided to do to help protect kids in communities close to former military bases and ranges where unexploded explosive ordnance (UXO) hazards might still exist.

Approach

Androcom President, Ken Desson, directed the development of a suite of outreach materials including lesson plans, posters, physical props, handouts and, notably, a  6-minute video on UXO hazards and safety tips geared to the needs of children in the 8-12 age range.  The video features an animated host called Li’l Uxo who narrates the program and appears on screen from time to time to point out hazards and explain how to respond.  A companion video was developed for senior high school students and the general public.
