JAMESTOWN, N.D. (NewsDakota.com) – Kids from all over piled into the Jamestown Civic Center Thursday afternoon for the 3rd Annual Kids Safety Days June 28th.
The day highlights safety for kids and brings in emergency organizations from across Stutsman County. Central Valley Health Unit Administrator Robin Iszler says they want to raise children’s safety awareness.
During the day, kids learned many things from multiple organizations. One of those was Gene Leininger with Otter Tail Power Company.
Sgt. Benjamin Kennelly with the North Dakota Highway Patrol was also there, showing kids the new patrol cars they have. He says this event is a chance for them to show kids the human side of being in law enforcement.
The Stutsman County Sheriff’s Office brought with them Child ID kits for the kids to take home and use. Stutsman County Sheriff Chad Kaiser pointed out that kids could fill out the information that could help in the event of a kidnapping.
Another big highlight during the event was the free car seat checkups. Shannon Kaiser with Central Valley Health stated that it’s alarming how many parents, guardians and more incorrectly setup a child’s car seat.
Jamestown Police Officer Andrew Staska helped set up the bike rodeo obstacle course. He says kids go through some quick lessons and their bike is inspected to ensure it is road ready.
Kids were fitted for free bike helmets, which were purchased and donated by the Jamestown Optimist Club.
