2019 Safe Kids Fair: 9/22

Sunday, September 22 | Noon to 3PM | Community Medical Center campus

Join us for the Safe Kids Fair from 12-3 pm at CMC Campus. This is a free, fun-filled community event where children, families and caregivers learn how to stay healthy and safe, as well as connect with community resources, first responders, and service providers. The Safe Kids Fair features hands-on activities for kids of all ages including face painting, mascot appearances, giveaways, healthy snacks, prizes and the Arrive Alive Tour for Teens.

Arrive Alive Tour: The Arrive Alive Tour brings awareness to the dangers of texting while driving and drunk driving to Western Montana Teens. This sophisticated interactive simulator allows teens to experience what it would be like to drive while under the influence of alcohol or marijuana or how texting while driving is distracted driving; all in a safe and controlled environment. Depending on the simulation, teens will receive a mock ticket from law enforcement, attend a simulated ED visit for their injuries, go to a mock hearing led by a Missoula judge and be able to discuss how this impacts their car insurance with a representative from State Farms.
