CODAC CARES: One of the many informational booths at the Family Safety Day is CODAC. Pictured is Special Projects Coordinator Carolyn James of CODAC in Cranston.

Under blue skies this past weekend, the fourth annual Cranston Family Safety Day was held in Garden City Center. The day was filled with fun activities focusing on child safety, sponsored by Garden City Center, the Cranston Substance Abuse Task Force and the Cranston Police Department.

Activities included free child ID cards, Cranston Police K-9 dog Bosco, face painting, the RI State Fire Marshall Fire Safety Trailer (to help children understand how to behave in case of a home fire), bike safety activities, the RI State Police Rollover simulator, health screenings from CCAP’s Family Health Services and car seat checks. Free bike helmets were given to the first 500 children who attended. The helmets were donated by the Cranston Family Center and a grant from the RI Office on Highway Safety and the RI Brain Injury Foundation.
