U.S. Attorney’s Office Celebrates First Responders

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Northern District of West Virginia
Meet and Greet the Safety Fleet
Meet and Greet the Safety Fleet is planned for Saturday, September 21, 2019 at Cabela's at the Highlands in Triadelphia, WV.

WHEELING, WEST VIRGINIA – Families from across the Ohio Valley will have the chance to see their favorite emergency response, military and construction vehicles up close this weekend, thanks to the United States Attorney’s Office, Cabela’s, first responders, and other businesses in our community. 

United States Attorney Bill Powell is proud to announce the fourth “Meet and Greet the Safety Fleet” event at the Highlands in Triadelphia. This event offers a chance for children and their families to meet their local law enforcement and first responders and “touch a truck.” Participants can sit in their favorite vehicles, take pictures, and explore.

“The opportunity for children and their families to up close and personal with some our first responders and learn a little bit about what they do should never be passed up.  The commemoration of 9/11 just recently passed, and it clearly reminded us of the sacrifices these brave men and women do on a daily basis,” said Powell. 

The event is open and free to the public. It will be held Saturday, September 21, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Cabela’s in Triadelphia. There will be character appearances and a special appearance of AirEvac’s medical helicopter (weather permitting).
