Third Annual Community Connection Day To Be Held June 29th
Area residents with disabilities and their families are invited to attend the Third annual Community Connection Day for a unique opportunity to get to know Canton Public Safety first responders during this free event, which is scheduled to take place on Saturday, June 29, 2019. This annual event will be held from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m., at Canton Fire Station #1, located at 1150 S. Canton Center Road in Canton, MI.
Community Connection Day is intended to dispel fears and myths special populations may associate with lights, sirens, and uniformed public safety personnel. The event will be very interactive and hands-on, allowing 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. In return, Public Safety personnel will also gain insight into the needs and concerns of this special population for potential future interactions.
No registration is required to attend this event, which is presented in partnership with Canton Leisure Services Therapeutic Recreation, Canton Public Safety, and Plymouth-Canton Community Schools. This special event will also feature fun giveaways and special activities.
This event is made possible because of the generous sponsor support from Building Bridges Therapy Center and STEP Services. For more information, visit www.cantonfun.org or call 734/394-5460.
