Public Safety HQ Open House, a set on Flickr.
On Saturday, September 21, 2013 an Open House was held at the Public Safety Headquarters in Gaithersburg from 11 AM until 4 PM. Initial estimates from our partners in public safety, Montgomery County Police, indicate roughly four thousand people showed up for this introductory and FREE event.
Attendees were treated to a variety of demonstrations by both MCFRS and MCP highlighting the tools, and high skill sets, Police Officers and Firefighters use just about every day. As well, Fire Trucks and Police Units were available for close up viewing and, in some cases, jumping aboard! Additionally there was a variety of safety information available to take home.
Several other County Agencies also participated and there were a few rides and games that many of our younger visitors ended up enjoying tremendously. If the many smiles were any indication, a fantastic time seemed to be had by all!
