Safety First Kids Day

Parsons Sun – June 12, 2017

Matt Claibourn, Parsons Fire Department battalion chief, explains the extrication maneuvers to students. “It was crazy,” said Kameren McClenning, one of the kids watching. “They had to tear out the windows. It was loud.”

Cody Kiister, Parsons Fire Department driver, helps Scarlett Hucke spray a fire hose Friday afternoon in the southeast corner of Forest Park.

Labette Health Ambulance Service personnel demonstrate the rigidity of a spine board they use to stabilize patients for transport. Mia Howard, 12, was the volunteer “extracted” from the vehicle and placed on the spine board.

Parsons firefighters use tools to take a car apart in order to extricate people.

Shaun Haase, Mercy MedFlight flight nurse, tells a group of children about the emergency medical helicopter Friday morning at the 13th annual Safety First Kid’s Day, hosted at the Arvon Phillips Community Center and locations in Forest Park. The event, capped at 100 participants, gave youth the chance to interact with regional first responder and law enforcement agencies.
