The Norwalk Fire, Police and Public Works Departments along with Norwalk Hospital EMS will be sponsoring a free Open House and Touch- a- Truck on Saturday, October 7 from 10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. at the Public Works Center and NFD Training tower on South Smith Street. This is a rescheduled date due to a conflict on September 30.
All four Departments will feature hands-on activities, giveaways and demonstrations for all ages. Children and adults will learn how the City departments prepare and respond to all types of events to keep residents safe and can explore different fire, police and public works vehicles.
The Norwalk Fire and Public Works Departments have been sponsoring annual open houses for more than a decade. This is the third year the Police department is sponsoring the event and the first year Norwalk Hospital-EMS is joining us. In 2016, more than 2,000 visitors came to this event.
In support of the Open Door Food Pantry in South Norwalk, the Departments are sponsoring a food drive as part of this year’s open house. All visitors are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items; especially peanut butter, jelly, pasta/pasta sauce, soup and kid-friendly snacks. Last year, approximately 800 pounds of food was collected.
Light refreshments will be provided, the event will be held rain or shine. For questions, please contact Norwalk Customer Service at 203-854-3200.
