Shannon to Host Safe Kids Summer Safety Event

Safe Kids San Angelo is hosting a Summer Safety Event on Thursday, June 11 from 4:30 to 6:30 the Goodfellow Recreation Camp (1950 S. Concho Drive). This free event is designed to help inform and educate parents and caretakers on how to keep kids safe while having fun this summer.

Free life jackets and fittings will be provided by Safe Kids while supplies last. Children must be present to receive a jacket and be fitted. Car temperature tests with DPS and TxDOT will be offered, as well as hands-only CPR demonstrations by the San Angelo Fire Department. Other informational demonstrations will cover hydration, boating safety, drowning prevention, Stop The Bleed, gun safety and outdoor injuries like falls, cuts and snake bites. Kona Ice will be onsite and will donate 20% of all sales during the event back to Safe Kids San Angelo.
