Safety Town - A Big Hit with Local Kids

Approximately 300 children and their parents/grandparents had a great time and the opportunity to learn more about safety on Saturday at the Pilot Club's Safety Town event at Ivy Park. The event for toddlers through 6th grade gave kids the opportunity to get a "hands on" experience with a medi-vac helicopter, a MHP simulator, a fire safety house from Insurance Commissioner Mike Chaney's office, a fire truck from LFD, a police car from LPD, an ambulance, a police dog from the Winston County Sheriff's Office and safety training from a martial arts instructor.

More photos of the event can be seen in the following slideshow.
