Plymouth Combines Public Safety, Fun at “Truck-or-Treat”
October is Fire Safety Month and for the second year in a row, Plymouth Public Safety is combining education with fun at neighborhood fire stations.
“We’re allowed to provide a good public safety message in a fun environment that’s a safe environment as well,” said Mark Friske, with the Plymouth Fire Department. “So kids can come and get candy from a firefighter or public safety personnel. It allows them to have two trick-or-treats, really.”
Moving the traditional fire department open house from a weekend event to an evening Halloween event has been a success. Several public safety personnel participate, from K-9s to North Ambulance to Plymouth Crime and Fire Prevention.
