|La Porte Health and Safety Fair|Stay Tuned for Information on the 2014 Health & Safety Fair!
The City of La Porte, La Porte LEPC and La Porte ISD hosted the annual La Porte Health and Safety Fair on Saturday, September 28th. This year, the fair was held at La Porte High School and was another huge success.
The Health and Safety Fair was full of fun activities and provided educational information for the community’s children, adults and senior citizens. The first 500 children in attendance received a free Safety Fair T-shirt and a bicycle helmet donated by Health Bridge Houston. Many door prizes were given away throughout the event.
Over 100 exhibits promoting health and safety information were available, including free health screenings, free vision screenings, free children’s immunizations, free child ID kits, a 24-foot rock climbing wall, Bike Safety Exhibit with children’s bike raffle and much more. Exhibitors included local and county public safety groups, local industry, health organizations, and local civic and volunteer organizations. Many in attendence helped support the La Porte High School booster clubs that were having fundraiser activities for their organizations. Children attended the Teddy Bear First Aid Clinic to learn simple first aid and registered to win a free teddy bear.
Local industry provided exciting and educational demonstrations throughout the event. A medical helicopter landed in front of the school and many were able to tour it, as well as, visit with Clutch the Rocket, Wally Wise and Sparky the Fire Dog during the fair. Outside displays included LyondellBasell and "Clutch" the Houston Rockets mascot, La Porte Fire Department engines and ladder trucks, the La Porte Police D.A.R.E. car and many other emergency response vehicles and equipment.
