Third Annual Barbour County Safety Fair Introduces Kids to Emergency Personnel
The third annual Barbour County Safety Fair was held on Saturday at the Barbour County fairgrounds.
Kids of all ages got the chance to meet emergency personnel, explore ambulances and fire trucks, and learn about all types of safety.
Those included school bus, fire, and prescription drug safety.
Organizers said it's important to teach kids about safety early.
“We think getting them out so that they aren't afraid of the fire, police, or EMS its very important especially for the younger ones so that they know they are an authority they can look to if they do need help,” said Cecil Holbert, safety fair organizer.
The fair concluded with a visit from a Health Net helicopter.
The kids got to explore the helicopter and ask questions.
