Subject   Transportation Safety in Youth Activities

The Church Handbook of Instructions explains Church policy regarding travel, use of seat
belts for each passenger, and insurance coverage. Stake presidents and bishops are
encouraged to review the following information in stake and ward councils and emphasize
the importance of safety and appropriateness in activities:

          Plan Activities That Are Safe and Appropriate                     Book 2, 271
          Church Activity Insurance Program                                 Book 2, 277-78
          Parental Permission                                               Book 2, 278
          Travel (including commercial and private liability insurance)     Book 2, 279-80

All leaders of youth and young adults should also use the Activity Plan (33809) and Parental
or Guardian Permission and Medical Release (33810), available from the Church Distribution
Center, when organizing activities.
