Fire and Police celebration set for Saturday

About 4,000 people are expected to gather outside Police and Fire

Headquarters on Saturday to have a good time and hopefully learn a

little about safety as well.

This year’s Fire Service Day and National Police Week celebration


will take place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. More than a dozen new and

vintage police and fire vehicles will be on display along with the

police helicopter. Paramedics, hazardous-materials crews and urban

search-and- rescue teams are among the groups expected to perform


demonstrations. Safety-related agencies and civic groups will also be

manning informational booths. A disc jockey will play music and

visitors will have a chance to get photos taken with Walt Disney

characters, organizers said. Food and drinks will also be for sale at

the event.
