Our Thanks to all who participated in Safe-tober Fest!
Our first ‘Safe’tober Fest was a big success for two ‘huge’ reasons: the amazing families that came out to Old Town Spring and our mutual aid agencies that brought their safety “A game”.
From the Harris County Sheriff’s Office bringing out their helicopter, mounted patrol, command vehicle, stealth Camaro, and community engagement team to the Public Health Department providing free vaccinations and so much more. Families had a great time discovering new ways to make their lives safer.
Hundreds of people walked through the Atascocita Fire Department’s Ambus, Spring Fire’s inflatable fire safety house and climbed into fire, rescue, and hazmat trucks, airboats, ambulances, and police cruisers.
Harris County Precinct 4 Deputies brough their cruisers. The Spring ISD Police brought out their autism support unit. Texas DPS brought out Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital brought kids’ bike helmets. Caregivers got information on car seat checks from Safe Kids Greater Houston. Harris Health, Memorial Hermann, Harris County Public Health and Ally ER helped our community know more about their health options and domestic violence prevention. Harris County’s Office of Emergency Management brought out information on how to stay safe. The Kailee Mills Foundation was on hand to promote buckling up and Memorial Hermann Life Flight showed off their state-of-the-art helicopter.
Families got to meet firefighters, deputies, 9-1-1 operators, paramedics, troopers and investigators from the Harris County Fire Marshal’s Office. CenterPoint Energy showed why we should all call 8-1-1 before we dig. Even the U.S. Marines showed up.
Sparky the Fire Dog made many new friends, including H-E-Buddy. We appreciate our Spring H-E-Bs for donating snacks and water for the all the first response and safety agency personnel and volunteers at ‘Safe’tober Fest.
Our Thanks to the Spring Historical Museum for loaning their back porch as a stage for the talented students from Spring’s “School of Rock” who kept the crowd on their feet.
‘Safe’tober Fest is already one of the biggest safety fests in Texas. ‘Safe’tober Fest plans to return bigger and better on Saturday, October 7, 2023 in Old Town Spring.
