FAME Students Hold Health and Safety Day

Milton Elementary Summer FAME students enjoyed a day full of presentations and activities at their Health and Safety Day on July 19. Students spent two hours rotating through ten stations, learning about local organizations that help keep them safe and healthy. Delaware State Police had a member of their Scuba Unit and Bomb Squad attend the event, providing students the ability to see real scuba equipment used by the divers, as well as the Explosive Ordinance Disposal Truck and robotic equipment used to detect and detonate explosives. Milton Fire Department with Ladder 84, Milton Police Department, Food Bank of Delaware, the fire school, and the Fire Marshall, were also in attendance and shared valuable information with the students about their organization. Beebe Trauma & Emergency Safe Kids Delaware representatives shared ways students can stay safe while biking and walking along busy roads, and CrossFit Lewes had students up and moving around with a quick workout they could do throughout the summer months to stay active. During one of the rotations, students also were able to get their picture taken with DelDot’s Wally the Workzone Warrior. Thank you to all of these organizations and their representatives that took time out of their schedules to provide a fun-filled morning for the FAME students!
