This event, called “Touch-A-Truck,” gives kids a unique chance to not only see but also touch and explore different types of emergency vehicles that you usually see speeding down the street on important tasks. Kids will be able to get hands-on experience with fire trucks and other emergency response vehicles. This will help them understand these huge tools better, even if they have only seen them from a distance.

But it’s not just about getting close to the big trucks; there will be lots of other fun things for people of all ages to do. There will be food trucks ready to serve tasty treats that will keep everyone fed during the day’s adventures, and bounce houses for some high-flying fun.

It’s also possible for the kids to win school supplies while they play with these real-life heroes and their vehicles. The giveaway is an added bonus for families attending this educational exposition.

It’s not just for fun; the goal of these kinds of events is to build relationships between the police and people in the neighborhood, especially young people. Organizations like the Broward Sheriff’s Office aim to establish confidence and empathy, which are important for public safety in any neighborhood, by giving people chances to connect positively in non-emergency situations.

Jennifer Marion from the Broward Sheriff’s Office is in charge of making the event happen. People who want more information can get in touch with Marion at Jennifer_Marion@sheriff.org. She and her team are ready to answer any questions about the event or give more information about what people can expect.

This Public Safety Expo, with its Touch-A-Truck feature, is a great example of how to reach out to the community and build relationships between people and service providers like police officers and emergency personnel. That gives kids a chance to meet their neighborhood heroes in person, which helps them respect these people early on who spend their lives helping others.

The Broward Sheriff’s Office wants families from Tamarac and the surrounding areas of Broward County to not only go to this fun expo, but also spread the word about this fun and educational event. The expo is designed to teach kids about public safety while also being interesting enough for parents to enjoy as well.
