The rain and cool temperatures didn't hamper festivities at the annual Warsaw-Wayne Fire Territory Family Safety Day held September 8 in Warsaw Central Park.  

The new junior firefighter challenge allowed children simulate the activities of a firefighter.  Children had the opportunity to carry a hose, crawl through a tunnel, spray water at a target, and drag a manikin.  In addition to the this challenge, some of the other events of the day included:

  • Gummy worm surgery by KCH
  • Bucket truck rides from REMC
  • Fire extinguisher simulation
  • Dollhouse burn
  • JAWS demonstration
  • Visits from Sparky the Fire Dog and Daren the Lion
  • Scavenger hunt
  • Ronald McDonald mobile unit
  • Helicopters and many other emergency vehicles

Special thanks to all the participants that helped make 2018 Family Safety Day a success and to Lutheran Health Network, KCH, and Kosciusko REMC for their sponsorship.

Congratulations to the winners of the bicycles and child car-seats.

Family Safety Day is presented by the Warsaw-Wayne Fire Territory and sponsored by Kosciusko REMC and Lutheran Health Network KCH. Family Safety Day offers free activities devoted to health and safety with a variety of hands-on learning activities, presentations and games.
