Safety is No Accident: Live Injury Free.
The Wichita Falls Wichita County Public Health District is hosting a FREE Health Fair in association with National Public Health Week.
This year’s theme encourages everyone to prevent accidents from happening by taking actions such as wearing a seatbelt, properly installing and using child safety seats, wearing a helmet while biking, storing cleaning supplies in locked cabinets and many other actions to promote safety and prevent injuries.
Each year, nearly 150,000 people die from injuries, and almost 30 million are injured seriously enough to go to the emergency room. The Health District is hoping this year’s FREE health fair will rally citizens to take proactive measures to make their homes, businesses and activities as safe as possible.
This year’s fair features:
a children’s Bicycle Rodeo,
Life Flight helicopter,
Fire Department Firehouse,
DPS Rollover Demonstrator,
