Family event to focus on summer safety

First Things First Foundation for Health & Wellness will present a free family event Saturday in Uniondale to promote summer safety.

The event, co-sponsored with the American Heart Association, will be held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Uniondale Public Library, at 400 Uniondale Ave.

Light refreshments will be served and no registration is required.

There will be information sessions for adults and activities for children conducted by professionals.

Topics to be covered include summer skin care, swim safety, bike safety, stranger danger, self-defense, Internet safety and fire safety.

Parents will be given child identification kits that would help parents take fingerprints; the kits also include cards for detailing physical descriptions and a place to keep current photos and store a small DNA sample.

The information could help law enforcement identify a missing child.
