Kids Safe Saturday, sponsored by Think Child Safety, is being held at this Love Civic Center this Saturday, May 6, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. (rain or shine).
There will be a 5K run during the event with free hot dogs, Oncor ARC Demo Trailer, TXDOT rollover convincer, and many other interactive activities for the kids.
“There will be lots of giveaways and great memories to be made. Several different First Responders on-site to interact in a great positive way,” said organizers.
Think Child Safety teaches children about 911, car seat safety, gun safety, fire safety, bicycle safety, water safety, CPR and First Aid, and pedestrian safety. The program provides constant re-enforcement by exposing children to visual reminders and opportunities to practice these skills.
Children are also taught to recognize the Think Child Safety logo. These logos are placed on vehicles with/without “Mobile Safety Vehicle” under the logo.
The concept of this component is to identify businesses or organizations in the community that utilize two-way radios and cellular phones. These vehicles would be identified as “Safe Havens” for children if an emergency arises. The individual would be trained in basic first aid, and could notify EMS, police, or fire if necessary.
