Over twenty community health related service groups will participate in this community-wide event. A wealth of information will be available on topics such as senior health services, nutrition, fitness and diabetes. There will also be a variety of free health screenings – body fat, physical fitness levels, stress levels, and metabolic screenings. This year we have partnered with the state and local EMS, Fire and Law Enforcement to provide safety information/demonstrations as well. Including car seat safety checks and bike safety.

The California Highway Patrol (CHP) from the San Andreas office will have specially trained Child Safety Seat Technicians onsite to inspect and teach drivers how to properly install child safety seats.

“Your child’s life depends on that car seat, that’s why it is important to make sure it is properly installed.” stated CHP Officer Rebecca Myers.

On Saturday along with this free service the CHP will also be checking bicycles to make sure they are properly equipped and fit the child. CHP Officers will inspect bicycle helmets for proper fit and will be replacing helmets that do not fit properly or have outworn their usefulness. There will also be a bicycle course for testing your child’s skills and knowledge.
