Warm summer weather greeted Perry-area youngsters and their elders Saturday at the sixth annual Perry Public Safety Day, staged in the parking lot at First Avenue and Iowa Highway 141.

Demonstrations of life-saving gear used by police officers, firefighters and ambulance paramedics were staged after Old Glory was raised atop the Perry Volunteer Fire Department’s 85-foot ladder truck.

Young visitors were encouraged to scramble into the police patrol cars, sit behind the wheels of the fire trucks and check out the life-saving tech in the ambulances.

Representatives included the Perry Police Department, Perry Volunteer Fire Department, Perry Public Works Department, Dallas County EMS and the Dallas County Hospital, with a special visit from the MercyOne lifeflight air ambulance.
