2:22 p.m., Oct. 10, 2013--The University of Delaware Police and the UD Emergency Care Unit participated in the second annual Health, Safety and Information Fair held Wednesday, Oct. 9, at the University’s Early Learning Center on Wyoming Road.
The fair was held for the children and families of the Early Learning Center and was offered through a partnership between the center and the New Directions Early Head Start Program, both in UD’s College of Education and Human Development.
Partnership for change
More than 70 families obtained information from more than 20 vendors from the campus and local communities.
Present were UD Police officers, including a K-9 officer, as well as emergency medical technicians (EMTs) from the University’s Emergency Care Unit.
The children interacted with the police officers and EMTs and were allowed to walk through the ambulance and sit in the front and back of the police car.
The officers spoke to the children about being safe and provided them with crayons and coloring books that discuss stranger danger, bike safety, bullying and other related topics.
