The Town of North Hempstead holds the safety of their residents, especially young children, to heart and has put together an event for kids to learn about how to be safe. This year will be the 11th anniversary of Kids Safety Day on Tuesday, Sept. 25, from 4 to 6 p.m. at Mary Jane Davies Green in Manhasset.
The event is an interactive program which is similar to a board game, where children and their parents receive a map and collect stickers and learn about how to be safe from strangers, dogs, swimming pools and so much more. Kids Safety Day is designed to engage children and their parents in education about fire, the Internet, car safety and more. The Manhasset Lakeville Fire Department will be on hand with a smokehouse that will allow children to get a hands-on experience on how to safely exit a burning structure. Kids Safety Day features giveaways, arts and crafts and more.
“We look forward to hosting Kids Safety Day every year. This community tradition allows children and their families learn how to stay safe in many different ways,” said Supervisor Judi Bosworth. “Through partnerships with local organizations we able to create an event that is filled with useful information and resources for our residents.”
“Kids Safety Day has become a valuable tradition that teaches ways keep our children safe,” said Councilwoman Anna Kaplan. “Supervisor Bosworth and I are excited to once again be hosting this community event and are looking forward to seeing many of our residents take advantage of what this event has to offer.”
Mary Jane Davies Green is across from Town Hall on Plandome Road in Manhasset. The program is open to all.
