The first-ever UIS Police Department's Public Safety Day will be held Saturday, September 25 from 10 am to noon at SASA. We encourage all SASA families to attend the event. A highlight of the event will be a Life Flight Helicopter landing. (Note: the far west parking lot will be closed for the helicopter landing.) The event will also include:
UIS Police and Illinois State Police teaching road safety and steps to take in an emergency
Sangamon County Sheriff's office holding a K-9 demonstration at 11 am
Springfield Fire Department discussing fire safety
Illinois Conservation Police discussing boating safety
Ameren Illinois demonstrating power line safety
Operation Life Saver teaching railroad safety
"Being a first responder and having kids, you try to teach them about safety and what first responders do," said UIS Police Officer Adam Rade. "This event will serve as an educational resource for adults and children."
