On Sunday, the Director and Head Counselor of Machane Heights biking day camp met with Patrolman Frank Bulzoni of the neighborhood 71st precinct.
Patrolman Frank sat with Rabbi Peretz Blasberg and Rabbi Dovid Blasberg for an hour discussing bike safety and how the police can help insure the boys of Machane Heights can have a quality, safe summer.
They discussed how the boys ride their bikes to the Lubavitcher Yeshiva on Crown St, where the camp meets daily, including Sundays, from 8:15-4:30.
Patrolman Frank heard how the boys ride their bikes to the several neighborhood parks: Wingate Park, Lefferts/Metz Park, Rochester Park and Prospect Park. The boys always travel in small groups with two staff members in bike lanes to insure the maximum safety. A car with safety equipment and first aid materials always accompanies the boys. Patrolman Frank or a colleague will come to the camp and do a presentation to the campers.
