An Annual Family Fun Public Safety Day is Returning to Somerset
Each year, the Somerset Police Department goes above and beyond for their community with a family fun 'Public Safety Day' that welcomes all ages.
This event was previously scheduled for September 16th but has been moved to Saturday, November 4th at the Somerset Berkley Regional High School from 10 AM to 2 PM. The Somerset Police Department has been demonstrating proper protocol for public safety within the town for years and this year, they've made the event even bigger.
Parents- if you're looking for something to do with your kids, this is the event to take them to.
Although this is a free event, the Somerset Police Department is asking for non-perishable donations from those attending.
"This event wouldn’t be possible without our sponsors," Detective Michael Demoranville said, "We are super lucky to have the backing of the community to be able to put on a free event to not only educate the youth but also so they can have a fun time. It's a good group of local community organizations coming together for the kids- that's what it's all about."
Waring-Sullivan Funeral Home and Somerset Federal Credit Union teamed up with the Somerset PD to keep the tradition alive as the annual Public Safety Day event continues onward year after year. Home Depot, Lineage Logistics, Stop & Shop, and Auclair's Market also made donations towards the event.
Kids will be able to check out some of the local police cruisers, the environmental police truck, State Police cruisers, and even fire equipment the Somerset Fire Department will have on the scene to demonstrate how each piece works.
There will also be K-9 and motorcycle demonstrations, an interactive "smoke" trailer, crafts and children's activities, live music from D.J. Jonathan Berube, plenty of food, and even a petting zoo.
