"Community Safety Day," a FREE event and precursor to Fire Prevention Week (Oct. 6-12), helps heighten awareness about basic safety issues.
Firefighters and police officers also perform a variety of rope rescue and fire extinguisher demonstrations, SWAT exercises and radKIDS® demonstrations to show some of the many skills they use regularly. Visitors can ask questions of Johns Creek firefighters and police officers and learn about public safety vehicles and equipment.
The Georgia Firefighters Burn Foundation answers questions about ways to handle various emergencies and the Johns Creek Police Department's K-9 unit is a highlight of the event.
Informational handouts and safety checklists are available and the event features children's activities, such as a bounce house and slide.
