Eau Claire (WQOW)- Volunteers from Mayo Clinic Health System are teaching young kids how to be safe in scary situations.
More than 80 boys and girls from across the Chippewa Valley gathered at Carson Park Tuesday for the 20th annual Safety Camp, where incoming fourth graders got to learn hands-on about different safety topics.
"We built first aid kits today, we learned about pet safety, we’re gonna be having electrical safety soon, we’ll touch on internet safety, bike safety. So really everything you can pretty much think of as a safety topic we cover," said trauma injury prevention coordinator, Kim Strasburg.
News 18’s Chief Meteorologist Nick Grunseth was there to teach kids about weather safety, and AAA provided a rollover simulator to show kids what happens if you don’t wear a seat belt. The kids got lunch and made new friends during their recess. They’ll be back at Carson Park Wednesday for their second day of camp.
