"It is with great pleasure that I write a letter extolling the value of the S.A.F.E. program (Safety Awareness Fundamental Education) that Michael Eichenberg has developed for schools. We at Naperville Central High School have been utilizing Michael, his program, and his instructors for 3 years in our Physical Education program. The information that has been given our students over those years has greatly assisted our students as they venture forward to the “REAL WORLD” after graduating high school.
Michael and his instructors have conducted themselves in a very professional manner. Much thought has gone into the delivery of the message of the importance of awareness in order to feel and be safe in different environments. Instruction also includes strategies of how to deal with situations which can not be avoided. Our school and department whole heartedly endorse this program. This has been a great addition to our Physical Education program and certainly a benefit to our students who take advantage of participating in this class."
