improving playground safety

knowledge, understanding, and accountability!


Safe at Play has teamed up with the National Program for Playground Safety (NPPS) to empower communities to create safe and high quality play areas for children. Our safety programs will educate schools, parents, children, and the community at large on the vital importance of playground safety to prevent needless playground injuries, disabilities, and deaths.

Playground Safety Awareness Programs

Pay it Forward


Safe at Play distributes Pay it Forward cards to any and every one through our own act of kindness, as well as to those that request cards to distribute as they perform their own act of kindness in honor of Tyrah.  Your donations helps to fund the cost of the pay it forward cards. It costs you nothing to have cards sent in quantities of 10 or less. 


​​Safe at Play was founded in April 2016 after the loss of our daughter, Andrea Tyrah DeBruhl, to a tragic playground injury on February 1, 2016.


​​Our organization missions include the following:

Safe at Play has teamed up with the American Heart Association to train the next generation of live savers. Children at any age can learn the concepts behind CPR and effectively begin to administer CPR at age 9. Safe at Play will offer training for 3rd to 8th grade students, as well as educators and parents, to learn these life saving measures. When ordinary people, not just doctors and EMTs, are equipped with the skills to perform CPR, especially if performed immediately, it can double or triple a victim’s chance of survival.  

Your tax-deductible donations are highly appreciated and help fund all of our organizational endeavors.

Thank you for considering a donation to Safe at Play!

First Aid, CPR, and AED Training

Advocacy is one of the most important missions of Safe at Play. We work towards preventing needless injuries, disabilities, and deaths to our children on playgrounds. We are committed to representing the cause and fighting for funding and legislation at the local, state, and national level for safe playgrounds and accountability for adult supervisors.​
