ODHFS apparatus display, Chesterfield County Fair Public Safety Day ! This event is back and ODHFS has had great displays in support of the Chesterfield County Public Safety agencies in past years.
Apparatus set up is at 10:00 AM at The Chesterfield County Fair Grounds. Event will be 11:00 AM – 3:00 PM and participants can stay & enjoy the fair for the remainder of the day if they wish.
We are excited about the public safety day on August 28th. Below is a list of displays and activities we will provide. Our plan is to arrive at 10 am to set up and most of the departments will be there until 3:00 pm due to staffing, emergency response requirements, and considerations with the dogs. Some may be able to stay for a longer period of time. As always in emergency services, what we plan for might get re-directed to handle an emergency, but all of us will do our best to provide the fair attendees with a fun and educational afternoon.
I wanted to confirm that the fair will be allowing public safety personnel into the fair on Saturday the 28th free of charge (with proper public safety ID badge). This is consistent with what has been done in previous years.
