The Community Safety Awareness Day Program is partnering with the following:
Freemasons of Illinois Child Identification Program (IL CHIP) -- Parents will be provided with a FREE child protection kit, including a DNA sample, fingerprints of the child, and a CD containing a color photo and recorded interview.
Illinois State Police – Officer Mike Kindhart will be explaining Safe Driving Practices and providing simulation units to let you experience the effects first-hand. There will be a Texting While Driving Simulator, Impaired Driving Course, and a Vehicle Roll-Over Simulator, as well as other valuable information.
Adams County Health Department – Offering Child Car-Seat and Seatbelt Checks, as well as providing information about child health and safety.
Adams County Tri-Township Fire Department -- October is Fire Safety Month. Tri-Township Fire Dept. will have a fire truck and equipment on display. Firefighters will discuss fire safety and concerns for all ages.
Adams County Sheriff Department -- The SRT Tank will be on display for all to see and touch--always a delight for the kids! Also, see the newest addition to the fleet – a New Squad Car with all the lights and technologies. An Officer will be available to answer your questions.
American Red Cross – They will display their Disaster Relief Truck, as well as a booth with literature to help you understand their outreach services for those in need. Learn how you can help out in your community.
Air Evac LifeTeam -- Will have information about their services and benefits. Air Evac LifeTeam is committed to providing increased access to emergency trauma care to rural Americans. Learn how they can help you and your loved ones in a time of need. A helicopter flight can be costly, but with the membership of no more than $60 a year, the entire cost is considered prepaid and the member will be flown at "no charge".
Great River Honor Flight -- Donations help transport World War II and Korean War veterans to Washington, D.C., so they may visit and reflect on their memorials. Honor Flight is funded entirely by contributions. As part of the Community Safety Awareness Day, each personal contribution will trigger an additional contribution by the event organizers.
Courtesy Towing and Recovery – Courtesy will be displaying their towing and recovery equipment. Locally Owned - 24 Hour Towing & Recovery Service for Cars, Trucks, and Large Equipment. If you are in a collision or if your car just won’t run, we are your one call to take the stress out of your day. We will pick up your vehicle and take it to “Your Choice” for repair.
Volunteer Emergency Corps -- When someone is lost or drowns in the Mississippi River, the Quincy Volunteer Emergency Corps responds. It's a group of more than 50 local men and women who patrol and drag the river to locate or recover missing victims. The searches take money, most of which comes from community donations. As part of the Community Safety Awareness Day, the Corps will be providing food and drinks for sale. All proceeds will benefit their efforts. Join us for lunch!
