Local law enforcement reached out to some elementary school students in an effort to teach them safety tips.
The Safety Day event, held Wednesday at Sing Lum Elementary School on Chaney Lane in Southwest Bakersfield, included a K9 demonstration, helicopter landing, and a helmet demonstration. The Bakersfield Police Department, Kern County Sheriff’s Office, California Highway Patrol, and Kern County Fire Department were all in attendance.
“We actually found that they were not going to do any field trips, which is pretty sad,” said CHP Public Information Officer Robert Rodriguez. “So, we decided to bring the field trip to them.”
In addition to safety demonstrations, the school held an open house and family picnic.
