The Carmel Fire Department, Carmel Police Department and St. Vincent Carmel Hospital are hosting this year’s Public Safety Day.

This is a free event and everyone is welcome.
Safety Day will include educational booths by local businesses and organizations designed to teach children and families basic safety techniques on a wide range of topics. Also, health and wellness booths will be on display. Activities at each booth or area will give children and adults a chance to test their knowledge or ask questions about a given safety, health, or wellness concern.
Booths and activities include but are not limited to: Carmel Fire and Police equipment, K9 demo, vehicle extrication demo, SWAT demo, Carmel St. Vincent Hospital CPR demo, bicycle safety, car seat clinic, how to use 911, public safety and military helicopters, military vehicles, big wheel race, family balloon toss and family escape plans.
Many departments from the City of Carmel are participating in this year’s event by educating the public: Street Department on street maintenance, Utilities on drinking water safety and Household Hazardous Waste on home hazardous waste disposal.
The goal is for families to have many opportunities to interact and learn about Public Safety in the community to teach, reinforce and introduce safety concerns to all those in attendance.
