Evansville neighborhood holds annual safety day

EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) -

People living in one Evansville neighborhood want to make sure everyone slows down when they drive through.

The Willow Creek subdivision held its annual safety day on Saturday.

Organizer William Stein says they started the event 6 years ago because people were driving too fast through the neighborhood.

Now, it's turned into a big event where kids can learn about safety.

Indiana State Police and the Perry Township Fire Department were on hand to give water rescue demonstrations and free fire engine and car rides.

"They really do listen and practice some of the things that you preach because you never know when you are going to be in a situation where there is a fire in the house, or there is something going on in the neighborhood, or someone walks up to them and does something bad, so they have fun and they learn at the same time, which is key," said Stein.

"We get to go on fire truck rides and we each lunch and we just have fun," said Tessa Fleenor, Willow Creek resident.

The neighborhood also had a barbecue and kids were able to cool off with water from the fire truck.
