Area kids are learning more about the people who handle emergencies and what they should do if they are in an accident.

The Albany Mall and eighteen local public agencies, like the fire and police departments sponsored the annual kids health and safety expo today.

Kids took tours of fire trucks and learned how firemen handle emergencies.

They were also able to get in an ambulance and talk to emergency workers.

Event coordinators say they hope this event will teach kids how to be safe and who to call if they are in danger.
