Important People in My Community

This video begins with a pictorial review of some typical Canadian communities and then two young hosts take viewers on a field trip to visit various people they would find working in a community. Among those visited are a farmer, a dentist, a fireman, a police officer, a doctor, a Canada Post worker and a garbage collector. Each person describes their job and tells why it is so important to the community. Students are given health and safety tips from the various professionals. Important safety tips such as when to call 911, not to play with matches and stay away from open flames are discussed. A dental hygienist gives a brief overview of correct brushing and flossing techniques. The importance of taking an interest in your community, being responsible and helping out when you can, whether by yourself or with a group of friends, is discussed.
