The phrase "Safety First" wasn't just a saying for 471 5th graders from Douglas County and West Central Area schools last Thursday.

They learned about it up close and personal at the 20th annual Safety First Camp at the Runestone Community Center in Alexandria. They participated in 20 classes, demonstrations and interactive presentations.


All the presenters donated their time to educate students about a variety of safety issues.
