IDHS hosts Public Safety Day for a Family-Friendly Day of Education and Entertainment

PLAINFIELD – The Indiana Department of Homeland Security (IDHS) invites you to Public Safety Day in Plainfield. IDHS is hosting Public Safety Day to show appreciation for public safety personnel and to give families an inside look at some of the life-saving skills of firefighters, EMS, and more.

Families can enjoy live fire demonstrations, vehicle extraction, food trucks, and more. Additional hands-on opportunities include learning about fire gear, fire extinguishers, CPR, how to stop a bleed, and even how to roll a firehose.

“Public safety personnel are a vital asset to our communities. Highly trained professionals are the first people you are going to see in your time of need,” says State Fire Marshal Joel Thacker.  “Public Safety Day gives you the chance to learn about these professions and have fun at the same time.”

IDHS will be represented by the Indiana Fire and Public Safety Academy and the EMS, Hazmat, Fire Investigations, and Search and Rescue K-9 sections.

Ivy Tech, Vincennes University, WorkOne, Hendricks College Network, Indiana National Guard, FEMA Integration Team, Town of Plainfield, Plainfield Fire and EMS, and the Liberty Township Fire Department will be joining the event as well.
