“This will be a great way for people to walk around and see and talk to everyone involved with keeping the public safe,” says Baer.
Equipment and demonstrations are planned, as well as the always popular trucks and vehicles from law enforcement and the fire department . Hospitals, all five branches of the military and the Center for Missing and Exploited Children are also expected to appear. There will be giveaways for all ages.
“Sometimes there’s a perception out there that we as an island, are a ‘tax donation,’ so to speak, without needing or getting much in return. We hope that these folks will come take a look and see all the resources that go into this concept of public safety,” points out Baer.
The event will run from 10:00 am -2:00 pm on Saturday, January 8th.
