Free Safety Presentations

  • The right training for any vehicle and any age.

    The open road and the bush trail offer freedom and fun to Manitobans of all ages, as well as essential transport. But whether on-road or off, driving presents hazards. Community safety presentations give Manitobans of all ages and confidence, knowledge and skill they need to manage risk and arrive home safely.

    SSM offers these free presentations, sponsored by MPI, to community groups:
