[ARCHIVED] New Date! Amherst Senior Center Hosts 2nd Annual Community Safety Day


The Amherst Senior Center is sponsoring the second annual Community Safety Day as a way to promote public safety and connect individuals with their local first responders. This is especially important for older adults because they represent about a third of Amherst's 9-1-1 calls. The event brings together the Amherst Fire Dept., Police Dept., Community Responders (CRESS), Sheriff's Dept., and Northwestern District Attorney's Office. 

New Date! Community Safety Day is on Saturday, June 24th from 10am-2pm  on Saturday, August 12th from 10am-2pm at the Mill River Recreation Area (95 Montague Rd., Amherst). Featured activities include a touch-a-truck, jaws of life presentation, k9 demonstration, car seat inspections, information booths, face painting, and a live DJ.

This family friendly event is free and open to all!
