The General Insurance Services (GIS) Family Safety Day was a fun filled and educational event held at the Washington Township Fire Department late Saturday morning. The mission of the event was to raise awareness to the community about safety. The day’s activities began with car seat checks, driving stimulators, creating first aid kits, high voltage demonstrations, station tours, and, of course, food. Later on, a medical helicopter even landed, which made an impressive sight. Many people were awed as they anticipated its appearance. The community event was a great opportunity for people to engage in learning activities and to gain valuable knowledge that could impact their lives one day.
