PUBLIC SAFETY FAIR TO BE HELD MAY 19-20
The MPSF, a not-for-profit corporation that provides support for the city’s police and fire services, will hold its fifth annual fundraiser during Fry's Electronics’ Anniversary Sale Saturday and Sunday, May 19 and 20.
The fundraiser will be held in the Fry’s Electronics parking lot, 3065 Webb Road (click here for directions).
From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. both days, police officers and fire fighters will offer a hot dog and cold drink combo for just 50 cents. In addition to hosting the event, Fry’s also donates all the food, drinks and grills, allowing all proceeds to benefit the MPSF, which in turn purchases needed equipment for the police and fire departments.
There will be special events on Saturday, including free child safety seat inspections, blood pressure checks, demonstrations of fire extinguishing techniques, exhibitions of fire and police equipment, a K-9 Unit demonstration and a SWAT team display.
