DeSales to Hold Public Safety Day
Andrew Ritter '12 | Mar 20, 2012
From a distance, the grounds of DeSales University on March 28 may cause onlookers alarm, or at least a weighted pause. Starting at 3:30 p.m., the University will be hosting a bevy of police cars, ambulances, a fire truck, and imposing police-mounted horses. The display will be part of DeSales University’s first “Public Safety Day,” a community outreach that encourages children of all ages to survey the field of public safety. Upper Saucon Township’s Police Department and Fire and Ambulance Department will be represented, as well as the Pennsylvania State Police, Lehigh Valley Hazmat, and the Bethlehem Police Department Mounted Patrol Unit.
Police officers, firefighters, and EMS technicians will be on-hand to explain their careers and field questions. Children will even have the opportunity to explore the workings of a firetruck. The event will be held from 3:30 p.m.-5 p.m. at the McShea Student Union building.
“This event will be a great opportunity for any student who may be thinking of a career in public safety to speak with a current professional and learn how to pursue their dream,” said Chief Stuart Bedics, current Chief of Police at DeSales University. The DeSales University Police, EMS, and Emergency Management departments will also attend the event.
For area youth piqued by a future in the ranks of public safety, families will be hard-pressed to find a better opportunity than DeSales University on March 28th.
