Firefighters and other public safety departments touted their work at the fourth annual Westfield Safety Day on Sept. 15. Throughout the afternoon, booths and demonstrations from local rescue groups, hospitals and public safety departments entertained the crowd – in addition to the inflatable bounce houses for children. A highlight was the police dept.’s K9 exhibition and the fire dept.’s extraction demonstration where they rescued a trapped victim from a fake car wreck. The event was sponsored by Franciscan St. Francis Health, Westfield’s Chick-fil-A, the shops at Village Park Plaza and the city of Westfield.
