Carmel Fire Dept., Carmel Police Dept. and St. Vincent Carmel Hospital have partnered to put on the annual Carmel Public Safety Day beginning at 10 a.m. Sept. 15 at St. Vincent Carmel Hospital, 13500 N. Meridian St.
The event will include demonstrations by the fire and police departments, free lunch and instructional booths on public safety.
“There’s a bunch of booths that’ll be there that day from public safety entities to city entities to educational booths,” CFD spokesman Tim Griffin said. “(CFD) will do a demo where we cut a car, so it’ll be like the scene of an accident, and they’ll cut the car and do a full extrication and (transport) the patient by helicopter.”
CPD will put on a K-9 demo and rappelling demo. Several military services will participate. A Blackhawk helicopter will be piloted by one of CPD’s officers who serves in the reserves.
“This is a great event. It’s a free event on a Saturday,” Griffin said. “Get your family out there. There are many educational options to teach you about fire safety, police safety and general other safeties from CPR and learning about the military. They have a lot of fun, interactive booths for kids, so if you’re looking for something fun to do on a weekend, head out there. There’s a lot of hands-on things kids get to learn and see while having a good time.”
