WATCH: Safe Kids Summer Safety Event Draws Hundreds


SAN ANGELO – Hundreds of children from the San Angelo area flocked to the Goodfellow Air Force Base Recreation Camp on Lake Nasworthy Thursday afternoon to meet first responders and learn about outdoor safety heading into the summer.  

The 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 were provided by Safe Kids. Children had to be present to receive a jacket and be fitted.

Other informational demonstrations and education included hydration, boating safety, drowning prevention, Stop The Bleed, gun safety and outdoor injuries, such as falls, cuts and snake bites. Kona Ice will be on site and will donate twenty percent of all sales at the event back to Safe Kids.
