First responders and members of the public got the chance to meet this past Saturday at the Santa Clarita Emergency Expo – part of KHTS Radio’s 9th annual Home and Garden Show.
The event served as a kind of open house for the agencies in attendance, giving them the opportunity to explain their individual roles in keeping residents safe. The Sheriff’s Department set up an informational booth next to one of its tactical vehicles and encouraged visitors to ask them questions.
Local fire units also opened their vehicles up for public display and staged several demonstrations throughout the day. The most anticipated of which was their “Jaws of Life” presentation in which they showcased the powerful devices they use to rescue people who have been trapped in cars.
