Special Events: FIRST RESPONDERS DAY March 22, 2015 (see Photo Album)
The City of Foristell Police Department and City Hall held their first official event in 2015. The FIRST RESPONDERS DAY took place on March 22, 2015. Kids of all ages were able to meet the first responders who included Officer Brent Wolsey, and Officer Kurt House of the City of Foristell Police Department. Captain Tim Urban of the Wentzville Fire District along with firefighters Bob Luzynski and Mark Dwyer assisted the kids with a tour of the fire truck and equipment used during a fire. Each child received an official fire hat. They were also allowed inside the Police cars where they took control of the sirens. Our special guest McGruff the crime fighting dog was also available for questions and pictures.
The parents and children were able to tour the City of Foristell Police Department and City Halls Court Room. Officer Wolsey was able to explain the procedures and process from arrest, fingers prints to the Court proceedings. The kids were surprised by the amount of paper work involved in doing the job of a police officer. The parents and children returned to the Annex Building where the parents authorized their child to be finger printed and received identification cards. By the end of the tour the children were certified Junior police officers and learned about the safety and the importance of how the first responders work as a team in protecting and serving our community.
The City of Foristell would like to thank all the people who volunteered their time and Ameren UE for the learning safety coloring books, balloons, and bracelets. Please contact the City of Foristell and let us know if you would be interested in attending another First Responders Event in the fall of 2015.
