Reference: Since 2002, under the motto "Comfortably where it is safe", the social project "Safety School" of the Group of Companies "FOXTROT" works. The brand closely cooperates with the Traffic Safety Department of the National Police of Ukraine. Among the actions aimed at the prevention of road traffic injuries is the annual contest of children's drawings "My Friend - Road motion". No less popular competitions are the school teams of young traffic inspectors (JUD) - from regional competitions to the all-Ukrainian finals of the KVN-YUD contest in Odessa, where in the form of jokes schoolchildren teach their peers how to avoid danger from the roads. Within the framework of the social project, cooperation with the State Emergency Situations Department of Ukraine on the prevention of traumatizing children as a result of accidents in the non-productive sphere has been established. Within the framework of the project, 4 series of the animated series "Fox and Trot hurry to the rescue" were created with the assistance of the specialists of the DSNC of Ukraine. And based on the series "Fire" on the actions of the child during the fire, a flyer "When the fire works correctly" is developed to fix new rules and teach the younger schoolchildren. Since 2012, along with specialists from the Rescue Service "101", the brand "Foxtrot" has been conducting "Safety Lessons" throughout Ukraine for younger schoolchildren. More than two dozen cities of Ukraine visited such lessons. Thousands of disks with a cartoon and instructive postcards were transferred to schools and kindergartens of the country to teach children safety rules. In March 2013, the School Safety project was named the most recognizable among consumers in retail (based on the InMind survey), and in April 2013 became the winner of the 7th National Social Advertising Festival in its nomination.
