As a final project, CHS and CoSA digital media students Bryanna Fabyonic, Angella Dawley and Emi Epstein collaborated with the Coronado Police Department (CPD) to create a “Coronado Summer Safety Booklet.” The Coronado Fire Department, Lifeguards and Police Department produced the document, which aimed to promote fun and safety for tourists and Islanders alike. The booklet was distributed to all CUSD schools, at the Coronado Recreation Center and at special events throughout the summer.

Graphic design students Fabyonic and Dawley designed the layout of the leaflet and created the background art and text. Epstein, an animation student, created and drew the three public safety partners: Jason (a German Shepherd) the police character, Sparky (a Dalmatian) the firefighter character and Luke (a yellow Labrador) the lifeguard character. The colorful booklet and canine characters are appealing to children, who were encouraged to read the “child safety tips” section.

The booklet was intended to be a reference guide for how to have a safe summer in Coronado. It includes important emergency numbers such as the police and fire departments, hospital and animal control. Jason, Sparky and Luke each give helpful and useful safety tips for their respective fields. The guide also discusses bike theft prevention and explains rip current safety.

Sergeant Diana Drummey of the CPD commissioned and edited the booklet. The Police Chief approved the layout, design and content, and it was distributed at the beginning of summer. Lea Corbin, a representative of the CPD, said that the department received many calls from tourists who appreciated the safety information they had found in the booklet. Epstein said she enjoyed working with the CPD and that the officers she interacted with were extremely kind and easy to work with. The overall reaction from the public was positive and Coronado residents and tourists alike found the booklet informative and helpful.

    Great initiative! From students to students. It sounds almost like from hearth to hearth. I appreciate their efforts in doing important things like this one. And I'll tweet it at in respect to their efforts. Let's more people know about it.
