Berrien County community holds child safety event Tuesday


With the case of three Ohio women vanishing for ten years fresh in peoples' minds, child safety has become a top priority for parents. That's why officials in Bridgman are holding a Child Safety Awareness Event Tuesday.

From 4 to 6:30 p.m. there will be an open house held at the town's public library at 4460 Lake Street. Inside, there will be a number of things that parents can do to help keep their kids safe, including:

  • Vision screening for kids as young as one
  • Car seat checks from the Berrien County Sheriff's Department
  • Safety information from the Health Department and Poison Control Center
  • Dental impressions and finger prints taken
  • Safety discussion with the Bridgman Police Department
  • Fire safety information from the Bridgman Fire Department
  • Water safety information from the Great Lakes Surf Rescue Project
  • Electric safety information from Indiana Michigan Power

The event is targeted for families who have children age 10 or younger.

For directions to the library, and more information about the event please visit their website.
