GET HANDS ON WITH SOME AMAZING VEHICLES

BY: Karon Warren

At Brookhaven’s annual Touch a Truck event at Blackburn Park on June 16, families will love getting an up-close-and-personal look at a variety of police cars, fire trucks, utility trucks, maintenance vehicles and more. “We bring in various types of emergency vehicles, bucket trucks from Georgia Power, even 4×4 trucks—things kids might not normally get to see or sit behind the wheel of,” says Brian Borden, parks and recreation director for the City of Brookhaven. Police, firefighters, utility workers and others will be on hand to demo the ins and outs of each vehicle, and youngsters will be invited to touch them, climb up into them and pose for pictures in them. In addition, emergency responders will be sharing safety tips and information.
