All about safety


(Posted Aug. 30, 2018)

More than 800 children and adults attended the Madison County Safety Expo, held Aug. 25 at the Madison County Fairgrounds.

The free annual event features demonstrations and interactive exhibits on a variety of topics, from bicycle safety to bullying. Sponsors are the Madison County Emergency Management Agency and other emergency, first responder and social service agencies from around the county.

Parents and their children watch as Survival Flight, based out of Mount Carmel Hospital in Grove City, lands on the expo grounds. Afterward, expo visitors got the opportunity to look at the helicopter up close.

Free bike helmets went to any child at the expo who didn’t already have one at home. The giveaway was part of a bike rodeo put on by the Friends of Madison County Parks and Trails and the Madison County Sheriff’s Auxiliary. For the rodeo, children pedaled through stations in a course designed to teach them bicycle safety tips.
