Smithfield holds safety day

Updated: Saturday, July 26 2014, 07:37 PM EDT

SMITHFIELD, Ohio - Families and children from across the area enjoyed Smithfield’s safety day and bike rodeo on Saturday.
 
The Smithfield Fire Department, police department, and the Bureau of Criminal Investigations were all on hand to teach kids about what they do.
 
For the bike rodeo they inspected kids' bikes and gave out helmets before they rode through obstacle courses and learned the rules of the road. 

Ten bikes were also raffled out to 10 kids. The event was made possible through donations from community members and local businesses.
 
"This has been needed,” Smithfield Mayor Tim Boyd said. “There’s hardly anything for the younger people in this town and when you get a lot of people coming in, and giving donations and bringing everything like this together. All the manpower it takes to put together, it’s great."
