Spring into Safety Carnival is today

The Coeur d'Alene School District is sponsoring its fourth annual Spring into Safety Carnival from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. today at Coeur d'Alene High School.

The free event will include a variety of indoor exhibits related to safety and family preparedness.

The Coeur d'Alene city police will have a table where people may dispose of unused, out-of-date prescription medicines.

Outdoors in the south parking lot, children can climb onboard a fire truck and check out a Coast Guard boat. Visitors can tour the county's Mobil Command Unit and the Kootenai-Shoshone Libraries bookmobile.

A shred truck will be on site, courtesy of Numerica Credit Union. Area residents may bring up to two boxes of personal papers for free shredding.

The school district's Nutrition Services department will be selling lunches for $2.50 per person. Each young child who attends will receive a passport booklet to have stamped by participating agencies; completed passports may be returned for a prize.
