Warsaw-Wayne Fire Territory held it’s annual Family Safety Day, Saturday, September 7, 2019. The event was held in Warsaw’s Central Park from 11:00 am - 3:00 pm.
New this year was The Kasey Program. The Kasey Program uses Labrador Retrievers to demonstrate safety skills such as Stop, Drop & Roll, checking the door to see if it’s hot, crawling under the the smoke, along with other fire related safety skills. Another popular event from last year returned: the Junior Firefighter Challenge. The Junior Firefighter Challenge simulates activities of a firefighter. Children carry a hose, crawl through a tunnel, spray water at a target, and drag a manikin. Public Works demonstrated crosswalk safety and allowed children to place a hand print on the bed of a city dump truck. Some other events included:
Bucket truck rides from REMC
Fire extinguisher simulation
Ronald McDonald mobile unit
Helicopters and many other emergency vehicles
Many organizations dealing with safety had displays along with several hands-on educational activities promoting health and safety. Thank you to all the participants that helped make 2019 Family Safety Day a success. Special thanks to Lutheran Health Network, KCH, and Kosciusko REMC for their sponsorship.
Congratulations to this years winners of the bicycles and child car-seats.
