On July 27, a truck safety event for children was held at the Seuffert Bandshell parking lot in Forest Park.

Co-sponsored by the city Department of Transportation, Community Board 9, FDNY, Jamaica Hospital Medical Center, Flushing Hospital, Glassco Trucking and Forest Park Administration Office, the event instructed about 100 children about truck safety and blind spots. All were given orange safety vests courtesy of DOT and bottled water was donated by the Ozone Park Kiwanis Club.

Joining the children at the event, top, were Community Board 9 Chairman Jim Cocovillo, left; Mary Ann Carey, CB 9’s district manager; Nancy DeCroce of the Ozone Park Kiwanis Club; Rosemary Ciulla-Frisone, DOT community coordinator; Randy Smith of DOT, Ronald Garib of Glasso Trucking; Stephen Restaino and Sal Palmeri from DOT; and Stacey Hodge, director of freight mobility at DOT.

Welcome to the discussion.
