On March 21, 2016, a Mobility Scooter Safety Event was hosted by KinVillage Community Centre, Delta Police, Delta Seniors Planning Team,  Crossroads Mobility Solution and Fraser Health. There were also representatives from Hub cycling, Medicine Shoppe Pharmacy, Deltassist Family and Community Services.   Due to the weather the event was held inside the KinVillage Community Centre and those attending were given an opportunity to learn how to safely operate the scooters using a course set up on the floor with a riding demonstration done by the attending members of the Delta Police using the scooter provided by Crossroads Mobility Solutions.  Several people commented that they had not had any instruction on the use of their scooters and very much appreciated the information provided.  Fraser Health sent an Occupational Therapist to provide safety information and support to those using other types of mobility aids.  The event was relaxed with laughter and good will demonstrated by everyone attending.
