Child Safety Experience Set For Oct. 26

Wellington’s Community Services Department has partnered with the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, Palm Beach County Fire-Rescue and other local agencies to host a free Child Safety Experience on Saturday, Oct. 26 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Wellington Community Center (12150 W. Forest Hill Blvd.).

The event is designed to provide general information on child safety, such as the dangers of not wearing a bicycle helmet and the proper steps to installing a child safety seat in vehicles. Attendees will find certified child safety seat installers and certified bicycle helmet fitters, free bicycle helmets and the correct fittings of young bicycle riders.

The PBSO will have the Child ID Machine on-site to register young participants. Young residents are invited to wear their favorite costumes and take part in a costume contest for a chance to win prizes. Attendees will also enjoy the PBSO’s Volunteer Bicycle Rodeo, demonstrations, presentations and giveaways.
