Community Connection Day

Saturday, April 29, 2017

Local families with at-risk and special populations are invited to meet and mingle with Canton police officers and firefighter/paramedics at Canton’s first Community Connection Day. This event is intended to dispel fears and myths special populations may associate with lights, sirens and uniformed public safety personnel. The event will allow attendees the opportunity to look/sit in police and fire vehicles, as well as talk with police officers and firefighters. The intent is to build a trust and comfort level for special populations when seeking out or receiving assistance from first responders. Public Safety personnel will also gain insight on the needs and concerns of this special population for potential future interactions. The event will also feature an expo area of resource-related vendors and organizations. This event is made possible because of the generous support of the following community sponsors: Building Bridges Therapy Center and Contemporary Dentistry.
