Shiny trucks at the library
Children of all ages will be able to see Wilton’s emergency services vehicles up close and personal on Helping Hands Day!, Saturday, Oct. 13, from 10 to 4. With all-day programming made possible through a partnership with the police department, fire department and Wilton Volunteer Ambulance Corps, the vehicles and representatives will be at the library as follows: Ambulance: 10 to noon; When Do We Call 911? presentation: 11; police car: noon to 2; Officer Friendly visits: 1 p.m.; fire truck: 2 to 4; fire safety for kids: 2:30. This is a fun way for children to learn about the important emergency caregivers in the community. Parents are encouraged to bring their cameras.
