Levy County Public Safety Expo
Published June 8th, 2013
LEVY COUNTY - Levy County officials say public safety is at the top of their list. Firefighters, law enforcement and paramedics gathered at the Bronson Youth League Field to kick off the second annual Levy County Public Safety Expo.
Sparky the fire dog joined children as they learned CPR and watched emergency demonstrations. While the expo also showcased some of the newest law enforcement and emergency vehicles. David Knowles with the Levy County Department of Public Safety said, "We had five helicopters in here this year to showcase off. We had multiple pieces of new fire equipment, donated fire equipment from contiguous counties to help support levy county's department of public safety, and this has all been a great success."
Firefighters and paramedics showed the public how they can rescue residents in emergency situations. With 41,000 residents, officials say this is the best way to raise awareness about what levy county has to offer the community when it comes to public safety.
