DELRAY BEACH – The Delray Medical Center Pediatric Trauma Council is hosting “Passport to Safety,” a community outreach event, on Oct. 26.
The free event will be at Fire Station No. 4 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. It is in collaboration with West Boca Medical Center and Delray Beach Fire-Rescue. The goal is to promote safety and reduce injuries in children.
As guests arrive to the “Passport to Safety” event, they will receive pretend passports. The firehouse will be set up with multiple booths, which will educate on topics ranging from water and bike safety to texting and driving. Participants will make their way to each of the stations until they receive a stamp of completion on their passport. Once the passport is filled, it can be turned in for a fun prize and/or face painting. Children will also have the opportunity to ‘trick or treat’ at each station to receive candy and prizes.
“We are proud to be a part of such an exciting outreach effort,” said Mark Bryan, chief executive officer of Delray Medical Center. “This event will be a great educational experience for the children in the community.”
