Tyngsborough Health and Safety Fair slated for Sept. 30
TYNGSBOROUGH, Mass. — The Tyngsborough Police Department, Fire Department and Board of Health are inviting the public to join in the fun at the newly-rebranded Health and Safety Fair on Saturday, Sept. 30.
The event will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Tyngsborough Elementary School at 205 Westford Rd. Previously known as Public Safety Day, the event will now feature a health and wellness component.
“We are excited to work with the Fire and Police Department to expand their annual Safety Day into a more comprehensive Health and Safety Fair,” said Health Director Kerri Oun. “We believe that this partnership will allow us to offer a more well-rounded event that addresses the needs of our community and look forward to creating an annual event that will continue to benefit our community for years to come.”
In addition, children will have the opportunity to explore vehicles from Tyngsborough Police and Fire, the Northeastern Massachusetts Law Enforcement Council, the Massachusetts State Police and the Massachusetts National Guard.
There will also be face-painting, balloon animals, snacks and drinks as well as music, games, and giveaways.
The Board of Health will provide free health check ups and opportunities to donate blood or get a flu shot. There will also be plenty of educational handouts to help residents learn about fire prevention, first aid and emergency preparedness.
“We have expanded Public Safety Day to include the Board of Health this year, and as a result we will have significantly more activities and information on hand for residents,” said Police Chief Richard Howe. “I encourage all community members to stop by the Tyngsborough Elementary School for a fun and educational day meeting first responders and public servants from Tyngsborough.”
