Manikin donation appreciated

The volunteers of Bear Creek Fire and EMS Inc. would like to thank those at Kenai Chrysler Center and the National Automobile Dealers Charitable Foundation for their donation of a Resusci Anne Complete CPR training manikin.

The manikin is the first of its kind for our department and will be a key factor in promoting CPR and first aid skills among our firefighters, medics and residents. Thank you.

Event highlights safety issues for kids walking to school

On Oct. 2, Soldotna Elementary and Redoubt Elementary schools joined in the third annual International Walk to School Day. Walking to school is a great way for kids to get exercise. Unfortunately, walking to school can be dangerous.

This awareness event helps schools address safety issues about walking to school. Students, parents, teachers and local officials met at meeting stations. After gathering, pedestrian safety tips were discussed, reflectors where given out and together they walked to their schools. Once at school, there was hot cocoa to enjoy with door prizes and coupons from McDonald's.

This event was made possible thanks to Chief Shirley Gifford and Officer Marvin Towell of the Soldotna Police Department; Jim Stogsdill, vice mayor of Soldotna; Rep. Ken Lancaster; Jeff Tucker, Central Emergency Services fire chief; principals Ken Meacham and Carolyn Cannava; Lauri Lingafelt, Sharon Hale and all participating parents and PTAs of Soldotna and Redoubt Elementary schools.

Special thanks to our sponsors: Kenai Peninsula McDonald's, Alaska Highway Transportation Safety Office and National Safe Kids. Thanks for helping keep our community kids safe.
