Today is Jay-Day, a day set aside to try raising fire safety awareness here in the lake area. Terri VanClavern came up with the idea for the campaign several years ago. That’s when her granddaughter, Jayden Ling, along with Ling’s mother and other grandmother were killed in a house fire in the Chicago area.
Several activities are planned for the day at the Lake Ozark Fire Station on Bagnell Dam Boulevard including a bounce house and games for the kids. Another feature of the day will be the “smoke house” which depicts how easily one can become overcome in a house fire. Jay-Day is scheduled to run today) from 11-5.
