District of Columbia officials discussed ways for residents to stay safe this summer Tuesday.

Mayor Vincent Gray, Police Chief Cathy Lanier, Homeland Security Director Millicent West and other officials gathered Tuesday to outline public safety programs offered in the District. At Barry Farms Recreation Center in Southeast they discussed disaster-preparedness tips, fireworks safety, crime prevention, youth programs and other resources.

The key is offering fun activities to keep kids out of danger, organizers said.

Community leaders are starting by combing the streets and playgrounds making sure they're clean, hazard free and ready for fun.
