STANTON — Local emergency service departments will host an open house Saturday to showcase the many services they provide.
The public services house will take place from 9 a.m. to noon at 655 N. State St. and will feature the Montcalm County Sheriff’s Office, Montcalm County Emergency Medical Services, Montcalm County Central Dispatch and the Road Commission for Montcalm County.
“This is a fun event for all ages designed to bring the community and public safety together,” said Amy Thomas of Central Dispatch. “We are excited to see as many faces from the public as we can and are planning to make this a yearly event.”
Tours of Central Dispatch and the Sheriff’s Office will be available and vehicles will be on display from local fire, police, emergency services and the Road Commission.
“In light of recent events, this is a fun and educational way to support your local public safety and become informed about what your county has to offer,” said Sheriff’s Lt. Brian Waber.
More than two dozen local emergency departments will be featured. Adults and children alike are encouraged to stop by.
“Montcalm County has many great services available,” said Brandon Mulnix of Emergency Services. “The open house is an event where less known services can be presented to the public along side popular police cars, fire trucks, ambulances, and other more known entities. The even allows residents an opportunity to see behind the scene services like Central Dispatch.”
