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 is proud to partner with the Oskaloosa YMCA to provide this important safety education to kids in our community.

Mike shared “We hope that this event helps to encourage kids to be safe and healthy while enjoying summer.”

YMCA Summer day camp offers youth an opportunity for growth through outdoor activities and experiential learning, supporting the YMCA’s core values of honesty, caring, respect, and responsibility.
