Saturday October 14
The Brentwood Fire and Rescue Department will hold the 7th Annual Public Safety Day Festival from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, Saturday, October 14th, 2017 in the City Park Building parking lot located at 7101 Executive Center Drive. The festival will include children’s activities, fire displays, police, and emergency medical vehicles. There will also be a residential fire sprinkler exhibition, as well as a vehicle extrication demonstration.
Between 1,000-1,200 visitors are anticipated this year based on past festival attendance. 2016 was the first safety day held in the new City Park location. Previously, this event was held in the former Kroger parking lot off Franklin Road.
Brentwood Fire Chief Brian Goss says “this event is an excellent way for children and parents to learn about fire safety in a safe environment. Children will be able to hold a water hose and see firsthand how fast a small room can go up in flames. This day helps educate our community’s youngest residents about the responsibility of public safety and what to do if ever they encounter an emergency.”
Event Coordinator Lieutenant Jay Williams says, “Bring your entire family out. There will be a jump castle, a hazmat trailer, a water spray station, K-9 units, DARE officers, free car seat checks, smoke simulator through a miniature doll house model, and CPR demonstrations.”
