We live in one of the most beautiful places in the country, and with the warmer weather everyone is wanting to recreate and get outdoors. Obviously, there is a lot of fun to be had when your outdoors with friends and family but there are lots of things we can do to make sure we stay safe as we enjoy the summertime in Idaho. The Canyon County Paramedics want to make sure you have a fun and safe summer that's why they are hosting the Family Summer Health & Safety Fair in Nampa.
