Child safety measures have parents pleased at this year’s fair

Posted: Updated:

LADSON, S.C. (WCIV) – It's opening day at the Coastal Carolina Fair and already safety changes including a new child loss prevention program seem to be a hit.

"It was a wonderful idea brought to us by the county sheriff; it's been a very popular thing as you can notice out here with out here. It's a great idea we still have the tag system over there that they can use, too. So it's a two-way check," said Joe Bolchoz, the media chairman for the fair.

He says parents are responding accordingly.

"It's an excellent idea, I mean with all the gadgets we have and cell phones and iPads and Facebook everything, I mean it makes sense," said mother of two Sybil Nelson.

Bolchoz says they are also continuing the green wrist bands with the parents telephone number on it.

"I think it's a great idea. You never want to have that nightmare moment when you can't find your children. With this each child gets a wrist band," said Nelson.

"That's awesome you know, it's right there so you have it when you need it," said parent Shalon Wigfall.

There is no cost for any of the child safety programs at the Coastal Carolina Fair.
