The kids learned about fire safety, boat and water safety, gun safety, bus safety, 911 emergency, and pedestrian and street safety. Police officers, community resource members and volunteer teen instructors provided demonstrations to help develop healthy, safe attitudes in children.

Those who helped included the Pequot Lakes Police Department, Crow Wing County Sheriff's Office, Crow Wing County Water Patrol, Pequot Lakes Fire Department and adult and teen helpers.

Participants learned about safety through various classroom activities, songs and videos. They practiced pedestrian skills and experienced simulated real life situations while driving tot-sized vehicles through a miniature city layout with city blocks, buildings and stop signs.

This is a Pequot Lakes Community Education program.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "Pineandlakes Echo Journal." Often, the "Pineandlakes Echo Journal" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
