The Waukee Police and Fire Departments will host Public Safety Day on Tuesday, Aug. 3 from 5-8 p.m. The annual event aims to educate citizens about safety and to create a neighborly environment in which the public can interact with police officers and firefighters.
“This is always such a powerful event for Waukee public safety departments. We are so excited to have it back after missing last year,” said Waukee Police Sergeant Mackenzie Sposeto. “Community members not only get to enjoy free, family activities, but they also take away real-life knowledge of how to keep themselves and their loved ones safe.”
“We look forward to seeing the kids climb on the fire trucks and spray the fire hose again, among other activities,” Waukee Fire Prevention Specialist Elle Osborn said. “These activities help us get on their level and help them become comfortable with emergency personnel. And, it’s fun for everybody!”
Waukee Public Safety Day will feature an array of activities and demonstrations including:
Free food from Fareway, beverages from Atlantic Bottling Company and ice cream will be served. All activities will be held at the Waukee Public Safety Building, located at 1300 SE L.A. Grant Parkway.
