A safety assembly for over 500 new Four County Career Center students was recently held at the school. The assembly was held to promote safety in the Career Center for all students, personnel, and visitors. Ohio State Highway Patrol Lieutenant Vern Fisher and Henry County Chief Deputy Arlen Cohrs both stressed the importance of safe driving habits. They emphasized that obeying traffic laws is vital as well as paying attention to speed limits, the actions of other drivers, and avoiding distracted driving through cell phone use. Kevin Thomas, Law Enforcement & Security Tactics instructor at the Career Center, also spoke to the students about lab safety issues and general school safety procedures on the school grounds. Throughout the year presentations on tool safety, safety in the workplace, proper handling of industrial materials, and other safety situations will be presented to the students.
