2018 Family Safety Day Promises Fun and Education for All Ages
8/20/2018 10:47:37 a.m. - Hobbs, NM.
Police cars, fire trucks, helicopters and more will converge on the grounds of the Western Heritage Museum and Lea County Cowboy Hall of Fame, Saturday, August 25 from 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. for a free Family Safety Day. The event will teach visitors safety tips by first-responders and social service agencies.
Among the displays for children and families will be the Flight for Life helicopter, Hobbs Fire truck, Hobbs Police vehicles, Hobbs Animal Adoption Center and Humane Society, Lea County Emergency Services, Lea County Electric Cooperative, New Mexico State Police, Lea County Sheriff’s Department, Lea Regional Hospital and more. Children can be finger printed by the Hobbs Police Department and get their photo taken with Smokey Bear. Adults can speak with several agencies on the services available in the County. Kona Ice and other refreshments will be available for a low cost.
“Last year’s Family Safety Day was a huge success,” said Mary Lyle, Director of Education at the Museum. “Families can interact with first responders, while climbing in the helicopter, getting on the firetruck, playing interactive games and more. With so many new people in the area, this is a great way for them to learn the public services available.”
The event is free to the public. For more information, call the museum at 575-492-2678.
