Tyngsborough Health & Safety Fair

Here is the official press Release for the event:
Tyngsborough Police and Fire Departments and Board of Health Invite Community to Health and Safety Fair
Police Chief Richard Howe, Fire Chief Wes Russell, and Health Director Kerri Oun would like to invite the community to the Tyngsborough Health and Safety Fair for a day of fun and educational activities.
Saturday, Sept. 30, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Tyngsborough Elementary School, 205 Westford Road, Tyngsborough, MA
The Tyngsborough Police Department, Fire Department and Board of Health are joining forces this year to turn Public Safety Day into the Tyngsborough Health and Safety Fair, with opportunities to meet and get to know first responders while also learning valuable lessons about health and wellness.
There will be a touch-a-truck opportunity, with vehicles from Tyngsborough Police and Fire, the Northeastern Massachusetts Law Enforcement Council, Massachusetts State Police and the Massachusetts National Guard on hand.
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 even 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 Chief 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.”

Child Car seat installs and inspections
We are pleased to announce: Tyngsborough FF/EMT-B Jon Chisholm recently completed the National Child Passenger Safety Certification Program put forth by the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration and Safe Kids Worldwide. This certification allows Jon to inspect and help install all sizes and types of car seats for the public.

Anyone interested in scheduling an inspection Please call 978 649 7671 pressing option 2. The firefighter or officer that answers will take down your name and phone number and then schedule you to stop by the station when Jon is on shift. Or you can email Jon at jchisholm@tyngsboroughma.gov
It is not required to have the kids who are using the car seats present, but it’s helpful to have them there to ensure a good harness fit. Before your first child comes, Jon can help with your infant seat and answer any questions you may have. If at your scheduled appointment Jon has to respond to an emergency call, he will call your number on his return and reschedule. Jon is looking forward to this new responsibility and to sharing his knowledge with the public.
