WEST VIRGINIA News: WHEELING, U.S. Attorney’s Office Celebrates First Responders

WHEELING, WEST VIRGINIA – Families from across the Ohio Valley will have the chance to see their favorite emergency response, military and construction vehicles up close this weekend, thanks to the United States Attorney’s Office, Cabela’s, first responders, and other businesses in our community.

United States Attorney Bill Powell proud to announce the third “Meet and Greet the Safety Fleet” event at the Highlands in Triadelphia. This event offers a chance for children and their families to meet their local law enforcement and first responders and “touch a truck.” Participants can sit in their favorite vehicles, take pictures, and explore.

“We see this event as an important way to connect families and those that keep them safe in their communities. Children will have the opportunity to have personal and positive interaction with law enforcement, first responders, and more,” said Powell.

The event is open and free to the public. It will be held Saturday, September 15, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Cabela’s in Triadelphia. There will be character appearances and a special appearance of AirEvac’s medical helicopter (weather permitting).
