The health department joined organizations around the country for "Safe Kids Day."
At Hollywood Connection kids learned about fire safety and what to do in case of an emergency. They were also fitted for free life jackets, booster seats and bike helmets.
Safe Kids Columbus Supervisor Pam Fair says, "That will help prevent an injury. We work with families who maybe can't afford to purchase a bike helmet or a car seat or a booster seat for their family."
The number one killer of kids is accidental injury. The department is working to get the word out about changes to laws affecting youngsters.
Now children under the age of 13 are required to wear an appropriate life jacket on a moving boat. That limit was raised from 10.
Also, kids under the age of 8 must wear a child safety seat or booster seat while riding in a car.
