Tykes take a trip to Safetyville

June 19, 2007

Thomasville-- This morning kids learned all about the rules of bike riding as they rode through Safetyville.  The Thomasville police department provides the program free for kids aged 5 to 7, from all over Thomasville.

Officer Penny Hembry explains, "a lot of the kids you know, they're out of school and they don't have a lot of things to do and you know this is something for them to do and something that they can learn, safety tips. And it really does help them."

In addition to bike safety, the children are learning lots of other aspects of safety as well. A representative from the fire department came to speak with them. They'll make first aid kits, learn about stranger danger, and even internet safety.
