Child Safety Experience Hosted by Wellington First Responders

Wellington Child Safety Experience Helmet Fitting demonstration

Wellington’s Community Services Department has partnered with the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, Palm Beach County Fire Rescue, and other local agencies to host a FREE Child Safety Experience. The event will take place Saturday, October 26, 2019, from 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM at the Wellington Community Center (located at 12150 Forest Hill Blvd).

This child safety experience is designed to provide general information on child safety such as the dangers of not wearing a bicycle helmet and the proper steps to installing a child safety seat in vehicles. Attendees will find certified child safety seat installers and certified bicycle helmet fitters, free bicycle helmets, and the correct fittings of young bicycle riders.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office will have the Child I.D Machine on-site to register young participants. We invite our young residents to wear their favorite costumes and take part in this year’s costume contest for a chance to win prizes. Attendees will also enjoy PBSO’s Volunteer Bicycle Rodeo, demonstrations, presentations, and giveaways. 

For more information or to inquire about sponsorship opportunities, please contact PBSO Deputy Scott Poritz at 561-688-5427 or PortizS@pbso.org.
