Wayne County Community College District's Downtown Campus Presents the 2nd Annual Summer Safety Fair
Date:6/25/2009

DETROIT, June 25 /PRNewswire/ -- The Wayne County Community College District's (WCCCD) Continuing Education Division presents the 2nd Annual Summer Safety Fair. This event will be held on Friday, June 26, 2009, from 9:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m., at the WCCCD Downtown Campus, located at 1001 W. Fort Street, Detroit, MI. 48226.

Nearly 6,000 children are killed and 14 million, or one in four, are unintentionally injured every year according to the National SAFE KIDS Campaign. Although unintentional injuries can happen at any time, it seems these injuries coincide with the warmer weather. In fact, a May 2001 report issued by the National SAFE KIDS Campaign confirms that summer months do pose a heightened risk for childhood injury.

WCCCD is taking the initiative to educate the community about the importance of summer safety, and helping to prepare young people and their families for a fun and safe summer. Youth Centers, Youth Organizations, Recreational Centers and Day Care programs and the general public are encouraged to attend. Participants attending this program will be able to learn about the importance of safety, and how to avoid potential danger. Demonstrations at the Safety Fair will include:

    Fire Safety                            Mc Gruff - Crime Prevention
    Child Identification Cards             Bike Show and Safety Presentation
    Swimming Safety                        Injury Prevention
    Skateboard Safety                      Eddy the Eagle - Gun Safety
    Stranger Danger                        Emergency vehicles
    The Safety Bear Program                Poison Prevention

WCCCD is pleased to have the opportunity to present this Summer Safety Fair in conjunction with the American Red Cross, Children's Hospital, Detroit Police and Fire Departments, Wayne County Sheriff's Department, The Michigan Institute for Public Safety Education (MIPSE), and Rise Above Entertainment.

WCCCD is committed to the continued development of new programs, hosting more community-based training sessions, improving student facilities and services, upgrading technologies, making capital investments in massive building expansion projects, training staff members to enhance their skills to maximize efficiency.
