MORRISTOWN — The Walters State Community College Campus Police Department will host a Safety Awareness Day at the Morristown campus on Saturday, Sept. 25 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. More than  20 agencies and organizations will be participating. The event is free and open to the public.

“This Expo is a chance to meet first responders and others who work every day to keep our community safe,” said Chief Sarah Rose, head of the Walters State Campus Police Department.

“This event will be very interactive. You can look inside a medical or police vehicle, see a law enforcement/emergency management command post and find out about different agencies in our service area,” Rose said.

Visitors can see how alcohol affects driving by wearing impairment goggles and driving a pedal car. Experience the effects of a roll-over crash with the roll-over simulator. See how important seat belts are by using the seat belt convince.

Those attending the expo will have chances to win great door prizes, including seven new child safety seats.

“We want to showcase the agencies and equipment available to serve this area. Most of all, we want to spotlight the individuals who keep our our campus, our community and our homeland safe,” Rose said.
