Children of all ages get to see, touch and explore their favorite truck or vehicle
Mayor Gee Williams announced today that America’s Coolest Small Town is holding its first annual Touch A Truck Day on Saturday, May 31, 2014 from 10 am – 2 pm in Berlin’s Stephen Decatur Park on Tripoli Street.
“This is a great family friendly event featuring Police, Fire, Electric, Water Resources and Public Works vehicles,” said Mayor Gee Williams. “Everyone will have the opportunity to learn all about the equipment they like the most.”
Several Town Departments and the Berlin Fire Company are joining together to hold the free event, which includes a police vehicle, bucket truck, digger derrick, vacuum truck, camera truck and garbage truck, along with a fire rescue squad vehicle and ladder truck.
“We’ll be setting a pole and demonstrating how we locate cables,” stated Electric Utility Director Tim Lawrence. “There will be lots of information about how to be safe around electricity as well.”
Hamburgers, hotdogs and ice cream will be available for sale throughout the event. The rain date is June 21, 2014.
In addition to getting a chance to touch their preferred vehicle, people attending the event will see employees from the Town and the Fire Company using the equipment.
