Bay City LEPC hosts annual Community Safety Block Party 


A free community event hosted by the Bay City Local Emergency Planning Committee attracted dozens of people Saturday, April 13 at the Wharton County Junior College - Bay City Campus.

The event, suitably named the “Touch-A-Truck” event, provided the opportunity for children and families to get up close and personal, to explore real first response vehicles.

Vehicles on hand included public works, police and fire departments, electrical, trash trucks, LCRA/ DPS boats, and LifeFlight helicopter. 

Several booths were set up during the event, handing out information about the resources and information available within the community such as the local Red Cross, United Way, TCEQ, For the Love of Animals and the Markham Industrial Group.

Those in attendance were also treated to free food, drinks, kids activities, a puppet show and chemistry show. 

Fire Department Emergency Responders performed demonstrations throughout the event.

The event is part of the LEPC’s Readiness/Response/Recovery program.
