The Delaware Public Health District coordinates an Ohio Safe Communities Coalition, called SAFE Delaware County. Each November at noon, the coalition remembers the Delaware County traffic crash victims who have died that year. Traditionally a display of wreaths with the name of each victim is dedicated as a reminder to drive safely during the holiday season.
Ohio Safe Communities is a data-driven initiative to save lives and reduce injuries through collaboration among state, county and local partners. Funding is provided by a grant program that provides federal funds administered through the Ohio Department of Public Safety, Ohio State Highway Patrol (OSHP) and Ohio Traffic Safety Office (OTSO) to eligible entities to be used for projects such as traffic safety education.
