ISU students help with Operation Safe Travel, a program to make sure students, faculty and staff are prepared for holiday travel.

POCATELLO, Idaho (KIFI/KIDK) - With holiday traveling around the corner, it's important to make sure our vehicles are safe and ready to go.

For the second year in a row, Idaho State University's Public Safety organized Operation Safe Travel.

A free vehicle check up was offered to students, faculty and staff on the Thursday before fall break.

Twenty-four students from the automotive technology program helped top off people's oil, check batteries, turn signals, brakes and made sure people were safe for traveling for the holidays.

“It’s also good for our students because this is a lot of the things that they do; checking oils and doing inspections. It definitely benefits our students in a couple different ways,” said Brock Gunter, the automotive technology coordinator.

Skills USA Automotive, Advance Auto Parts, Chartwells, ISU Housing, Marketing and Communications, Environmental Health and Safety and University Advancement partnered with ISU Public Safety to make this happen.
