It is the time of the year that children start back to school and the Laurel Fire Dept. wants to remind everyone to use caution when driving near school children and buses.
- Pay attention when you are driving and watch the entire area around you. Watch for children near the street and slow down.
- Please obey speed limits in school zones.
- Children can have tunnel vision regarding their activities and not pay attention to traffic around them.
- Keep a distance from buses and obey all school bus warning devices.
- Make sure children walk with a “buddy” and never alone. Predators may cruise neighborhoods looking for unsupervised children. Report any strangers to the Police immediately if they cause suspicion.
- Teach children to appreciate Emergency Services Professionals. - Talk to them about when and how they should call 911.
