Firefighters focus on child safety

Residents are invited to attend a free child safety event June 5 in Modesto.

Child Watch 2010, 225 E. Orangeburg Ave., will have child safety seat inspections, fingerprinting and DNA kits, along with information about Internet safety, child exploitation, gun safety and how to identify age-appropriate video games.

There will be fun activities including bounce houses, face painting, balloon animals and a chance to explore a Modesto Fire Department truck.

Attendees can eat free hot dogs and receive a ticket for a raffle if they donate a nonperishable food item.
