Renton Youth Safety and Education Fair scheduled for SATURDAY | CORRECTED

Renton’s second Youth Education and Safety Fair is scheduled from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. tomorrow, Saturday, at the Renton Community Center.

Join the police department for an afternoon of fun and activities, pick up free children ID kits, tips on internet safety and other free safety resources. There will also be a chance to learn CPR, join in games or raffles and face painting for the kids.

The Burien Fire children’s fire safety house will be on hand for tours and to teach kids how to escape a fire. Children can also see a fire ladder truck in person, sit in special response police vehicles and learn safety tips from police and fire personnel.

There will also be a special mascot on hand to greet children and introduce them to an afternoon of activities.

The 911 Community and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Puget Sound have joined efforts to bring attention to issues impacting the safety of children. The groups are uniting with the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) to promote their annual “Take 25” campaign, encouraging parents and guardians to take 25 minutes out of their day to talk to children about safety in honor of National Missing Children’s Day.
