Danbury invited to children’s expo and public safety fair

May 2, 2017 by  

Danbury residents, especially those with children, will want to attend the upcoming Children’s Expo & Public Safety Fair. The event, sponsored by the Putnam County Department of Health, will be free and will focus on family health and safety.

Operation SAFE CHILD will be there to issue biographical information and fingerprint ID cards. Parents with little ones can also get car seat checks. Social media safety will be discussed, and local representatives from family services, physical, and mental health services will be on hand to answer any questions. Firefighters will be showing the latest in Fire Prevention and police will be on hand to meet and greet the public and explain their Safety Services. Many safety demonstrations will be presented throughout the event.

Home Depot will be holding a Kids Workshop where kids can build useful items while learning tool safety and do-it-yourself skills. The fair will also have face painting, free giveaways, raffles, and a bounce house. There will be games, plenty of food for purchase at food trucks, and live entertainment.

Local child service groups may want to get this information to their organizations before this month’s newsletter printing.

The Children’s Expo and Public Safety Fair will be Saturday, May 13 from 11:00 am until 3:00 pm at the Training and Operations Building on the Donald B. Smith Campus, Carmel.
