Dozens of kids were at Jane Lew Park in Lewis County to learn about safety on Saturday afternoon.

They learned about all sorts of different safety tips from firefighters, police and other emergency responders. Officials taught kids about what to do in a crisis.

Groups like the Family Resource Network attended the event and provided free prizes, safety pamphlets and other items.

HealthNet touched down and let kids explore the helicopter. Organizers said the event was beneficial for the entire community.

Ruth Straley, the President of the Jane Lew Lions Club, said, "Everyone here is going to be informing the children which is great. It'll be good for everyone to be more informed."

The Jane Lew Lions Club also had a free vision screening at the fair. They're also working on grants to get eyeglasses for people in the community that may need them.
