Free fun, food, and lifesaving lessons at Community and Family Safety Day

Parents and children of all ages are invited to an upcoming Community and Family Safety Day for free fun, food, and lifesaving lessons on dangerous driving. The event is from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. March 4 in the parking lot of Marble Falls Middle School, 1511 Pony Drive. It is hosted by Open Door Recovery House.

“Open Door is primarily sponsored and supported by the community,” said Debbie Brolan, a board member and event organizer. “We want to give back to the community for all that they do.”

The safety fair will include demonstrations on the dangers of impaired driving with the use of drunk goggles, a rollover simulator, and other hands-on displays and activities from the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension, Texas Department of Transportation, and Brazos Valley Injury Prevention Coalition

First responders from the Marble Falls Police Department, Marble Falls Area EMS, and Marble Falls Fire Rescue will be in attendance with their equipment and emergency vehicles.

A similar event for adults only is planned for March 6. Also hosted by Open Door, it will include an in-depth presentation on the AgriLife Extension’s Watch UR BAC program, which educates parents on the signs of teen substance abuse.
