State Representative Darlene Senger recently hosted an expo to teach kids and their parents about safety.
Kids gathered at Frontier Sports Complex for the chance to climb aboard more than 25 different types of trucks such as fire engines, police vehicles, an ambulance and other safety vehicles they may see around town.
“Its really fun to watch these little guys when they aren’t even as tall as the tires here,” said Senger. “And oh my gosh, kids love trucks- they really do.”
Adults were also educated on the different trucks, as well as the importance of home and fire safety, nutrition, emergency care and dog bite prevention.
“As an adult knowing what these vehicles are for and their functions, you get the sense that I am being taken care of, that’s what this is really about- for the community to know, you’ve got a group behind you that is very concerned about the residence here and you are being taken care of,” said Senger.
Senger plans to continue the annual expo as a way to stress the importance of living a safe and healthy lifestyle.
