Touch A Truck

swat_vehicles“Mom, what’s inside a helicopter? ” “How many people can fit inside a  S.W.A.T Team van?”  “Can I climb the fire truck?”  If you children have ever expressed an interest to you regarding emergency vehicles or other large pieces of equipment, here is something that will help your curious ones.

Touch A Truck  is a c-o-o-l program that will be in the Cincinnati area throughout the summer and fall. There could be as many as 50 service, utility, and military vehicles for children (and adults) to see up close. You also get to meet the people who operate them and can ask them all matter of questions! There will be a wide variety of vehicles that include a: police car, fire truck, street sweeper, highway snow plow, dump truck, tow truck, garbage truck and a backhoe.

Some cities have already had the program (Blue Ash, Green Township), but here are the ones I found that will be happening the remainder of this year. Other areas will be having the event, but no specific date was listed when I looked. This included Wyoming, and Montgomery, so check with the city if interested. This is a FREE event and this will be great for first aid, safety, and fire safety- all topics we are required to teach. 🙂 So, pack up your children and take your husband in your vehicle and head on out to experience these spectacular vehicles.
