These vehicles include emergency response vehicles, planes, aircraft equipment, construction equipment, etc. Food will be available to purchase with proceeds going to each organization.
“This is a great way for young people to get hands on exposure to large and/or emergency equipment.” Said, Herbert Judon Jr., Airport Executive Director. “In addition to being a fundraising opportunity, it may plant the seeds of greater understanding, respect, and perhaps even pursuit of some of the associated career fields.”
