Race Day 2009
Friday July 24th from 6pm to 8pm
Officer Rob Brewer @ 616-355-1707
We are going to have a static display of various race cars with
their drivers and our goal is to educate the public on safety belt use.
The idea is that people, especially kids, like race cars and once they
see all the safety equipment associated with these race cars they will
also see that using their safety belts is smart. The kids will have an
opportunity to see the cars up close and even sit in some of them. There
will be stock cars, drag cars, and other racing vehicles that will be
participating as well as area Police, Fire, and EMS units. Along with
several local racers there will be the "Rescue 1 Fire Safety for Kids"
race car and the Allegan County Sheriffs Department "Beat the Heat" race
car. Our hope is to not only convince the "non-restraint" users to
buckle up but to also commend the people that are using their safety
restraints. There will be some safety related handout material also
available. The OHSP "Seatbelt Convincer" will also be at the event for
people to experience.
