Safety education can be beneficial to families — and it can also be fun. Those things come together June 1 at CoxHealth’s annual Kids Health and Safety Fair. The free event offers a one-stop opportunity to learn about need-to-know safety topics in ways that are both engaging and educational.
A few of the features include the following:
• Helicopter, ambulance and firetruck tours.
• Helmet giveaways (while supplies last).
• Bicycle safety stations.
• Visits with Star Wars Storm Troopers and other characters.
• Car seat checks.
• Bounce houses.
Prizes, including a bicycle and free swimming lessons, will be given away.
The event is scheduled for 9 a.m. to noon in the parking lot of Cox North Hospital, 1423 N. Jefferson Ave., Springfield.
