Washington, D.C. – Congressman Rouzer will be hosting two Back-to-School Safety Fairs focused on safety and awareness for parents, guardians and students of North Carolina’s 7th District.  These Back-to-School Safety Fairs will provide a fun opportunity for children to interact with public safety officials and vehicles and learn safety tips.  Representatives of local and state agencies will also be on site to answer parents’ questions, discuss first aid tips and demonstrate the proper installation of car seats.

“This is a great opportunity for families to get the tools and information necessary to help their children succeed in the classroom and become cautious and informed citizens.  Whether that is knowing who to contact when encountering a fire hazard or knowing how to safely cross a busy road on the walk home from school, it’s imperative for our community to work together to help our kids stay safe.  These Back-to-School Safety Fairs are a fun and informative way to increase safety knowledge and awareness for both the parents and students of Southeastern North Carolina.”

The first safety fair will take place in Smithfield this Saturday, September 12th, and the second will take place in Wilmington on Saturday, September 19th.  Children of all ages are encouraged to attend.  Details for the Back-to-School Safety Fairs are below.
