The Church’s new missionary safety video series is patterned after a fictitious studio show called “The SafetyZone,” with hosts talking about safety principles and showing “highlight” clips.

Additional missionary safety videos have been made public by the Missionary Department of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints after the March 1 announcement of the new “The SafetyZone” series.

The first video—to be seen by all called and assigned full-time missionaries before they enter a missionary training center—was an introductory episode focusing on obedience, awareness, and respect. That episode was available for public viewing at the time of the announcement.

Additional videos of the 12-part series, which now are found under the "Missionary Safety" topic listing on the Media Library landing page of ChurchofJesusChrist.org, include:

“The safety of the missionaries is our prime interest and desire,“ said Elder Dieter F. Uchtdorf of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, who chairs the Church’s Missionary Executive Council, about the March 1 announcement.

“The videos are focused on helping the missionaries with a lot of common sense and practical tips—to be safe in their missions and to protect each other, to help each other and to watch over each other,” he said.

The episodes are designed to be engaging and humorous while sharing examples of right and wrong practices.

Missionaries will be shown all subsequent video episodes during their time in a missionary training center, with all missionaries currently serving in-field to view the videos prior to May 1. That ensures the Church’s entire missionary force will have seen all episodes by that date.

Also, the videos can be used in subsequent training and conference meetings by missionary presidents and their companions.
