Burleson Fire Department and Texas Health Burleson have teamed up to host, Super Safety Saturday, an event for the entire community from 9 a.m. to noon. Saturday, May 21. The free event will be held at Texas Health Burleson, 2750 SW Wilshire Blvd.
The fun will include a CareFlite helicopter, Johnson County Game Warden, tours of the fire trucks and the fire safety trailer. Participants will learn pool safety education, how to perform hands-only CPR, how to size and fit a life jacket, bike safety, fire safety, car seat safety and drowning prevention. Joshua Fire Department will be performing free car seat check and Texas Medical Association’s (TMA’s) Hard Hats for Little Heads program will give free bicycle helmets to children while supplies last.
TMA’s Hard Hats for Little Heads program was created in 1994 to help prevent head injuries by encouraging helmet use for all sports on wheels: bicycling, skateboarding, rollerblading, and riding a scooter. TMA has given nearly 240,000 helmets to Texas children since the program began.
Certified swim instructors will be on hand to perform free swim evaluations for children. Participants of the swim evaluations will need to bring a swimsuit, towel and floatation device.
There will be free bounce houses and other activities along with giveaways and refreshments.
