Later this month the Portage Fire Department, with support from Portage Kiwanis, Porter Hospital, and Portage Firefighters Local 31-51, will be hosting “Bicycle Safety Day”. Portage Assistant Fire Chief Dan Kodicek says the course teaches kids how to ride a bike, what a stop sign and one-way signs mean, how to cross railroad crossings, to look both ways and other safety features.
The Portage Fire Department will be giving a free bicycle helmet to all children while supplies last at the event on June 29th, at Willowcreek Middle School, in the east parking lot, from 9am to noon. For more information, please contact the Portage Fire Department at 762-7404, M-F 8am-4:30pm.
