Public Safety Day

1999

Welcome to the third annual Public Safety Day

                     sponsored by the                      

   City of Bay St. Louis, Mississippi

This is a day set aside every year to give the public a chance to meet the people dedicated to public safety in an nonthreatening situation.  This gives the kids a chance to explore the equipment, ask questions,enter the annual coloring contest  and win some nice prizes.

This also allows the taxpayers to see where their money is going, to meet with a     lot of our city officials and have a good time with their families.

This year the kids got to meet not only the firefighters and police officers but some pretty special characters at the same time.

As always the entire department was on hand to show off the equipment, guide the kids through the trucks and keep them from blowing the air horns and sirens too much so the parents don't go home with a major headache.

The bell on the front of the new engine came off the first new fire engine the Bay had. This little one checks out the bell and fusses at whoever is ringing it from inside
