The Back to School Safety Fair returned Saturday for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic hit.

Local first responders, emergency preparedness pros, volunteers and more were on hand at South Park to quiz attendees on safety knowledge, offer tips and even fit kids with free helmets.

Lawrence-Douglas County Fire Medical had its smoke house, which simulates fire conditions, open for tours.
