First off I appreciate the planning that went into this. My wife and I took our daughter to meet the police officers and their dogs. She wanted to see the fire trucks and got a big thrill sitting in the truck with her plastic fire fighter hat on that they gave out. We enjoyed every aspect of the whole evening despite the heat. Josh clarke was the unlucky person that got to wear the bite suit. That had to be very uncomfortable provided the high heat. The children all liked to see the demonstration.

However it would have been nice to see a little more of the area services participating. Do they not fingerprint and photograph children any more and store the records in case a child comes up missing? She would have loved to see the lifeline helicopter make an appearance. Also we went to look at the ambulance, but the two people that were in it were sitting in it with all of the doors closed and the AC running. We stood there looking at them and they just waived and went back talking amongst them selves in the comfort of their cab.

All in all it was a good experiance.
