May Day! May Day!

Children’s Hospital Central California hosts summer safety fair


The 9th annual May Day! May Day! Have a Safe and Healthy Summer event was bigger than ever this year. This fun and educational event held at Chukchansi Park teaches first-grade students water safety, injury prevention, hand hygiene and more. Children from elementary schools throughout our region move around the stadium visiting booths and learning safety tips through interactive and engaging presentations. The event brings to a grand conclusion three days of classroom learning.

Organized by Mary Jo Quintero, prehospital liaison nurse in the emergency department at Children’s Hospital and water safety program coordinator for the Kohl’s Water Safety program, May Day! May Day! relies on hundreds of volunteers. Nurses, fire fighters, paramedics, police officers and others with safety information to share make learning an adventure during the popular event.
