“Pepper,” right, with Bikers Against Child Abuse, shows Lex Shtaida, 6, how to hold the handlebars of his motorcycle at a Safety Day event at Prairie View Elementary School in 2017.

Safety Day is back for another year, which will provide a chance for attendees to learn more about the officials who protect the Oregon community.

The annual event will take place from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Saturday, May 4, at the Oregon Area Fire/EMS District building, 131 Spring St.

According to an event flyer, Village of Oregon police, fire and public works officials will be at the event to meet and socialize with attendees. They will have their vehicles and equipment on hand for visitors to look through, the flyer states.

The Dane County Sheriff’s Recreational Patrol will be present, car seat check information will be available and attendees will be able to receive vision screenings.

Representatives of Hidden in Plain Sight, a program that provides tools for parents to help better educate their children about the dangers of drug and alcohol abuse, will also be on site.

The day is sponsored by the Oregon police and fire departments, Oregon community education and other local businesses.

Snacks and beverages will be provided.
