Touch a Truck attracts children of all ages with lights flashing, sirens blaring


ORANGE PARK – The sounds of children laughing and playing were interrupted regularly last Saturday, May 18, by the bursts of emergency sirens and the throaty moans of heavy diesel equipment during the Touch a Truck program at the Orange Park Mall.

Presented by the Clay County Emergency Management, representatives from the EMC, Clay County Sheriff’s Office, Green Cove Springs and Orange Park police department, Clay County Fire and Rescue and U.S. Department of Forest Service had their first responders and equipment on display. Children sat behind the wheel of a big fire truck or police car and turn on the siren and flashing lights. Green Cove Springs police also allowed children to wear their heavy service vests.
