A community leader paid an educational visit to a group of local youths in Mahaska County

Mike Lang, Emergency Services Director at Mahaska Health, recently visited the Oskaloosa YMCA’s Day Camp. Mr. Lang gave the campers a tour of the Mahaska Health ambulance and led a discussion on helmet safety, seatbelt safety, how to call 9-1-1, and the importance of knowing your home address and phone numbers.

Mahaska Health says it is proud to partner with the Oskaloosa YMCA to provide this important safety education to kids in the community.
