2nd Annual Public Safety Day a Success!

On Saturday October 13th, Brentwood Fire and Rescue hosted its second annual Public Safety Day.  Approximately 500 people attended the event in the Kroger parking lot with 250 more visiting the 4 local fire stations.  Family fun and great weather kept kids and parents busy.  This year for the first time over 16 vehicles had their child car seats inspected by certified technicians.  Over half of the car seats inspected were found to have been installed incorrectly and were fixed on site.

There were 3 demonstrations performed throughout the day.  A live vehicle extrication, live sprinkler demonstration, and a narcotics search performed by Brentwood Police Department's K9. 

Every hour, free CPR classes were given by Williamson Medical Center staff on hand.  The biggest hit of the day was a spray prop built by BFR's very own Engineer Ritchie.  Children could spray real water on a fake house fire.  After extinguishing the fire, children could take their turn posing as a real firefighter in a new life size picture cutout.  All in all, the event helped raise awareness of all the services and capabilities each agency provides on a daily basis.

Preparations are already underway for next year's event. Look for more kids activities, food, and further demonstrations.
