SAN ANGELO, Texas (Concho Valley Homepage) — Safe Kids San Angelo will be taking place on Tuesday, June 11, from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the Goodfellow AFB Recreation Camp on Concho Drive.

During the event, there will be several agencies helping educate parents and kids on summer safety as well as free life jackets.

According to Jamie Harden with Safe Kids San Angelo, kids must be present to receive a free life jacket.

"It's really important that those kiddos do need to be present because we will have people from Shannon Medical Center fitting those kiddos in the life jacket," she said. Life jackets will be given away while supplies last.

Along with free life jackets, Family Power Sports will be at the event with boats and jet skis to go over propeller safety.

"We will have lots of other safety agencies out there focusing on everything from rattlesnake bites to gun safety, vehicular heat safety, all of those things," Harden said.

Harden explained that having an event like this for those in and around San Angelo is very important because the number one death of children ages 1 to 4 is drowning.

"You can be in a pool full of people and a child can drown and nobody pays attention," she said. "So it can happen very quickly, within 20 to 60 seconds."
