Omaha's 18th annual Salute To Safety brings lifesaving ideas to Westroads Mall Saturday giving parents greater peace of mind.
More than 40 groups will present all things safety. One good option for parents is the Child Identification Program. You can get your child's digital fingerprints, toothprints and DNA to take home in case of emergency. The entire family can watch and learn as real life safety measures are put to the test.
“OPPD will have their live wire demonstration so they will show you electrical safety and they do a lot of cool stuff with their Respect Trailer,” says Omaha Police Officer Jennifer Nelson. “Then we have a live vehicle extrication so the Omaha Fire Department with LifeNet will actually pull a victim out of wrecked vehicle and then fly them to a trauma center."
Children ages 5 to 12 can also get a free bike helmet during the event. There is a limited number so you may want to come early for those. Salute To Safety at Westroads runs from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m.
