People learn safety awareness

October 14, 2006

Pelham -- Public safety officials in Pelham reach out to the community by spreading safety awareness.

It's the first ever community safety awareness day.

Law enforcement and fire departments throughout south Georgia as well as a helicopter transport team from Tallahassee came out. They educated the public about their jobs and community service.

People learned important safety advice And had a little fun while doing it.

"It's very important to know about safety, drugs, about our jobs. It's hard work sometimes, but also sometimes it's fun too, I wouldn't give it up for nothing in the world," said officer Helen Cody.

The Camilla Fire Department simulated a car accident with an injured victim who needed to be saved using the jaws of life.

Organizers hope to make safety day an annual learning experience.
