Safety is paramount in our society. One way to learn about different areas of safety is to attend events like a safety awareness day.

The Franklin County Safety Awareness Day will be 9 a.m. to noon Saturday in the Walmart parking lot. There will be fire extinguishing training, child seat check lane, free fire alarm sign-up, program weather radios, hands only CPR and boat safety. Event is sponsored by the Franklin County Emergency Management.

The public can view equipment and talk to personnel from EMS, fire departments, law enforcement and emergency management. Organizers said there will be lots of free give-a-ways to the public.
