|Gwinnett showcases safety at fun-filled festival|
From helicopters and speedboats to towering ladder fire trucks and a “Safety Wonderland” for kids,
Gwinnett County pulled out all the stops recently to show off the many ways first responders work to protect the community.
A crowd turned out for the event, which offered a host of free activities, treats and demonstrations.
Hosted at Coolray Field in Lawrenceville by Gwinnett’s Police and Fire Departments, the family festival, in its third year, included police demonstrations with officers maneuvering their motorcycles around an obstacle course, firefighters showing people how to escape a fire and Emergency Medical Technicians demonstrating their rescue equipment.
The fun-filled day also offered kids the chance to go rock climbing, bungee jumping and play on an open field, while parents had the chance to learn about household safety tips and crime prevention, among the many exhibitors that were on hand.
