For one day, kids got to play cops and firefighters
By Charles Sercombe
Saturday’s Public Safety Day was the perfect place for a kid to be.
There were police cars on displays, with sirens wailing, and fire trucks that kids could climb on and even get behind the wheel of.
Kids also got a chance to play tug of war, and join in with police officers and firefighters in a match up (the cops won).
And if all that wasn’t enough, there was an inflatable bounce house they could horse around in.
The event was part of a statewide program called “Welcoming Michigan: Building Immigrant Friendly Communities.”
All in all, it was a great way to spend a Saturday morning, and to get to know your police and fire departments.
