ALPHARETTA, Ga. — North Fulton and Forsyth County families enjoyed a sunny day during the Take 25 Safety Fair. The Forsyth County Sheriff's Office originally scheduled a Safety Fair on May 4 at Central Park, but the rain washed out all the fun.

On May 25, families gathered in the parking lot of Johns Creek Baptist Church, 6910 McGinnis Ferry Road, and learned safety tips from friendly deputies.

Deputy Kevin Ferraro led the stranger danger classes for children 3 to 11 years old.

"Adults don't come to children for help without going to mom and dad first," Ferraro said. "Don't forget that, because it's very important."

Parents took pictures of their kids inside the "Bearcat" armored vehicle and four-wheelers with sirens and met SWAT and K-9 deputies.

Inside the church, participants got their faces painted, and a child identification program updated families on abduction awareness.

Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) members handed out information on their training classes and how citizens can volunteer.

"We are the little known secret in the county," said Robert Sampson, member of the Disaster Response Unit and CERT.
