Spotlight on Safe Kids Middlesex County: Safe Kids Fair

Children at Safe Kids Fair 2009

Students from local Middlesex County elementary schools show off reflective bracelets they were given at the Halloween and Pedestrian Safety station.

For nearly 20 years, the Level One Trauma Center at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital and Safe Kids Middlesex County has held an annual Safe Kids Fair for second and third graders. This year, approximately 775 children from 11 Middlesex County elementary schools attended the safety and injury prevention program for a day filled with fun, interactive safety demonstrations and information. Teachers are provided with educational materials and resources that will enable them to incorporate the injury prevention information into the curriculum year-round.

Thank you to the volunteers from local organizations that helped to make this a meaningful and educational event for teachers and students: Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital’s Emergency and Pharmacy Departments, RWJUH Emergency Medical Services, Brain Injury Association of New Jersey, Middlesex County Sheriff’s Office, The Bristol-Myers Squibb Children’s Hospital at RWJUH, ShuaLife Skills LLC, and Child Passenger Safety Technicians from the Safe Kids Middlesex County Coalition, the Highland Park First-Aid Squad, Catholic Charities, as well as Safe Kids Coalition members and hospital employees.
