HAMPDEN, Mass. (WWLP) – The Hampden Police Department held an event on Friday for the community to meet their local first responders.
It was a pretty good turnout for public safety night in town. Families and the general public got to see live public safety demonstrations, such as a state police helicopter, K-9 units along with ambulances, and the Hampden Fire Department.
Those who attended were welcomed with food from local vendors and fireworks after dark. The outdoor family-friendly event had a bounce house and free ice cream.
“For kids and families to come out and talk to officers in a regular fun setting and there’s food provided,” said William Jacques of the Hampden Police Department.
A flu vaccine clinic was provided by Big Y Pharmacy.
