Hundreds of families came out the Cedar Valley SportsPlex in Waterloo Monday night – not to play, but to learn about safety.

Waterloo Police and the Allen Child Protection Center hosted the Cedar Valley Safety Expo. More than 25 agencies were on-hand to give out information on keeping kids and families safe.

Waterloo Police also distributed Child ID kits to parents.

“Making sure that you know where your children are, know who they're spending time with, make sure if they're involved with extra-curricular activities, they know who the coaches are, who the volunteers are and parents themselves need to get involved,” said Stacy Hesse, Waterloo PD Investigator.

Children could also check out fire trucks and some of the equipment local firefighters use.
