Independence Public Safety Kids Camp
08/08/2018 7:30 AM (EDT)
This will be a unique opportunity for children ages 5-9 to get a thrilling glimpse of what their local emergency responders are capable of while learning some very valuable safety lessons. This exciting opportunity is being provided to kids at no cost through donations and grants from local agencies and businesses.
The day will consist of fun filled, but educational activities that will introduce various aspects of emergency services and safety awareness to all of the children involved. There will be demonstrations by the EMS and Fire Departments using the “Jaws of Life”, a Air Medical Unit, 911 Emergency Communications, County Law Enforcement Agencies and many more. We will also take the kids to the swimming pool for an hour of water safety and fun so make sure you pack a swimming suit.
In addition to learning, all of the participants will walk away with some great safety give-a-ways that include a T-shirt, information on what to do during severe weather and much, much more. Most importantly we hope that they leave knowing a bit more about their local emergency response system and a few ways that they can be safer during the summer time.
All registered participants will get a letter with a schedule for the day about ten days prior to the event outlining what you need to bring and other particulars.
