THORNVILLE- Police Chief Nick Garver thought attendance was a little thin for Saturday’s Thornville Safety Day. But, realistically, he said, for its first year and limited publicity, a 50-person turn out wasn’t too bad.
The day had plenty of participation from various law enforcement and EMS agencies, however. Represented were the Thornville Police Department, Thornville/Thorn Township Fire Department, Lancaster City Police, Perry County Sheriff’s Office, the Ohio State Highway Patrol, the Muskingum County Red Cross, the New Lexington canine unit, and even South Bloomfield Police near Circleville.
A Med Flight helicopter touched down for about an hour before it was called into service. Garver plans for Safety Day to become an annual event, with a lot more advertising next year, he said. Safety Day benefits the Thornville Police Department.
