FedEx and Safe Kids teach children pedestrian behavior

FedEx Korea, the local unit of the world’s largest express transportation company, said yesterday it held a pedestrian safety training program for children and parents at Gaehwa Elementary School in Busan on Tuesday.

The program was conducted jointly with Safe Kids, an international organization that promotes child safety. Around 115 children attended the training sessions about pedestrian safety precautions.

Chae Eun-mi, managing director of FedEx Korea, said, the company “has a critical role to play in actively promoting a culture of safety around the world, nation, and local communities as a global express transportation company.” Song Ja, co-representative of Safe Kids Korea said that 65 percent of casualties from child traffic accidents in 2012 occurred while they were walking, citing the Korea National Police Agency.
