Family Discovery Safety Night.

On September 23rd, 29 preschoolers and family members attended the 4th Beaver Island Family Discovery Night. After sharing a free dinner, at their own pace they could visit stations where information on water, food, fire, vehicle, personal and emergency safety was available. The biggest hits for the children were tours of the EMS ambulance and having their picture taken on the Fire Department Truck. The event could not have taken place without the generous support of the following Beaver Island people and businesses:

Mike Russell -Charlevoix County Sheriff’s Department
–Child Fingerprinting

Joe Moore -Beaver Island EMS–Heimlich demonstration and water safety information

Gerald LaFreniere -Beaver Island EMS–Tours of the ambulance

Tim McDonough and Tom Whitman -Tours of Fire Truck and Demonstration of Firefighter’s equipment

Beth Croswhite -Beaver Island School “Stop, Drop and Roll” Education

Beaver Island Boat Company -2 free passenger tickets for AAA car seat inspectors and free freight for car seats.

Pat Anderson-Beaver Island Marine -Loan of lifejacket sizing chart and assortment of lifejackets for children to try on.
