DELRAY BEACH – Exhibitors and vendors are invited to participate in a community safety fair on Dec. 3, 2011 at Lake Ida Park.
The event offers a complete range of safety services for the entire family, organizers said.
“We have information on how to stay safe in your home, during recreational activities, Internet and cell phone safety for kids,” said Regina Simmons, president of 100 Black Women of South Palm Beach County, one of the event’s organizers. “We will have information on health and wellness, investment fraud prevention, car and driver safety, pet and wildlife concerns, and more.”
With more than 20 booths and displays, attendees will receive information and giveaways such as drawings for gas cards and other valuable prizes.
“Budgets are tight for people these days,” Simmons said. “We are pleased to be able to bring all these services and resources together and provide them to the community at no cost.”
There will be games, clowns, puppets, balloons, food and refreshments. There will be presentations from the Delray Beach Police Department K-9 and SWAT teams as well as other specialized units. The Florida Highway Patrol will have a safety demonstration called “Rollover Simulator” to illustrate the importance of wearing seat belts in a vehicle during a rollover.
This event provides a wide selection of safety information, far beyond the traditional crime prevention tips you might expect from a police department, organizers said.
Admission to the event is an unwrapped new toy, which will be donated to the Delray Beach Police Christmas toy drive program.
The fair is sponsored by the Delray Beach Police Department, Rearcy’s Ribshack, The Delray Beach Tribune and Knights of Pythagoras Mentoring Network.
