On Jan. 14th, Trooper Lucy Papp partnered with “Safekids” and West Manatee Fire Rescue to teach the importance of wearing seatbelts to Orange Ridge Elementary students. Over 750 students from pre-k through fifth grade learned of the dangers of not being restrained.

All students were measured to see if they needed to be in a booster seat. It is recommended that everyone, regardless of age, under 4’9” tall utilize a booster seat. Each student that met the recommendation received a letter for his or her parents advising of the opportunity to obtain a booster seat for a small donation. The event was fun for as well as informative. All had a good time.

The height of each student was checked for the need of a booster seat.
