Warr Acres Safety Fair
10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday
3800 N. Macarthur

The Warr Acres community is out to prove that learning about safety can be fun.

Saturday's inaugural Warr Acres Safety Fair brings together the city's police and fire departments along with Oklahoma Highway Patrol and EMSA members to give kids a fun and educational afternoon.

Children can bounce along in the moon walk, have their faces painted and even try their luck at soaking a firefighter in the dunk tank. In between play sessions, they can learn about fire safety, how to properly use their seat belt and have their fingerprints take at the Ident-a-kid booth. Kids will also be able to watch a Medi-Flight helicopter land outside the parking lot.

Mayor Patrick Woolley said it's important to teach kids to be healthy and safe, but it doesn't have to be boring. It can be fun, too.

"The community wants to teach kids safety, from dealing with strangers to danger with electric cords," he said. "There is a smoke trailer provided by the Bethany Fire Department that will teach kids how to get down and crawl to safety in a fire. It's good to have fun, too, which is why we have the dunk tank."

Games and booths will be set up from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 3800 N. Macarthur. Visit www.cityofwarracres.com. "Luke Atkinson
