Delaware County EMS sponsors ‘Touch a Truck’ events

Staff report

Delaware County’s Emergency Medical Services department will again host its popular “Touch a Truck” events this summer.

This annual event brings together a variety of emergency, law enforcement, fire and rescue vehicles, as well as service animals, and gives families a chance to climb on board and learn more about the life-saving work that the county’s first responders do every day.

The second Touch a Truck happens Saturday, July 22, also from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the Berlin Township Fire Station, 2708 Lackey Old State Road, Delaware.
