A community event hosted by the Klamath County DUII Task Force and Sky Lakes Medical Center is set for Saturday afternoon in Klamath Falls to help raise awareness on the dangers of driving and boating under the influence of intoxicants.
 
Following the public safety event, Klamath County-area law enforcement agencies will be hitting area roads that night targeting intoxicated drivers.
 
The April 10th event at Sky Lakes Center for Occupational Health located at 2621 Crosby Avenue, near the corner of Washburn Way and Crosby Avenue, starts at 12 noon and runs through 6:00 p.m.
 
Law enforcement officers from Oregon State Police (OSP), Klamath County Sheriff's Office, and Klamath Falls City Police will be at the parking lot with visual displays and will be available to answer questions. Klamath County marine deputies will partner with area patrol officers at the event because the dangers presented by impaired drivers affect everyone's safety on our highways and waterways.
 
The OSP Mobile DUII Processing Center motorhome is rolling into town for Saturday's awareness event and to assist later with Saturday night's multi-agency DUII enforcement effort to remove intoxicated drivers from area roads.
 
Child identification kits and child fingerprinting will be available to parents. Tips on keeping your child safe are available on the Internet at:
