For the second consecutive year more than a dozen Katy-area first responders and emergency service providers, including the Katy ISD Police Department and Harris County Emergency Services District No. 48, will team up to bring safety awareness to the public.
As part of the afternoon’s activities, live car fires will be extinguished and car extraction demonstrations will give visitors a behind-the-scenes look into emergency services, according to organizers.
The event will take place at the north parking lot of Katy Mills, 5000 Katy Mills Circle, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday. Organizers estimate 2,500 people attended last spring’s inaugural event.
KISD spokesperson Maria Corrales-DiPetta said in an emailed statement that other family-friendly activities will include law enforcement exhibits, emergency response vehicle displays and firefighter combat challenges.
An inflatable play area, safety mascot visits, Life Flight and police helicopter landings, food and drinks will also be available. The event is free and open to the public. Additional information is available at www.safetyfestkaty.org.
