"Be Safe, Be Seen" is the title of the pedestrian safety brochure Noah Tran created as part of his Eagle Scout Project.

Noah, a member of Boy Scout Troop 309, designed the project in response to the tragic death last winter of a Lake Forest Park woman in a pedestrian-car accident.

Safety flashers for pedestrians
The project included the purchase of 3,500 pedestrian safety flashers which he distributed with the brochure to students at Briarcrest, Lake Forest Park, and Brookside elementary schools, and at a table at the LFP Farmers Market.

They were also distributed by LFP police officers at National Night Out gatherings on August 2nd.

The City of Lake Forest Park Police Department and the LFP Rotary Club were the prime sponsors of the project.

Several businesses and individuals including Forest Park Cleaners, and Curves, along with Noah's family, contributed funds for the education and safety awareness program. These contributions, combined with funds from the LFP Rotary Club Foundation, produced the pamphlets and purchased the flashers. Both are still available in limited quantities for free at the LFP City Hall reception counter.

The sponsors say, "Congratulations, Noah, and thank you for this valuable contribution to making our community a safer place!"
