LAKE TRAVIS, Texas (KXAN)- The 7th annual Public Safety Day is joining forces with over 20 first responder agencies from Central Texas at their event Saturday.

The annual event is from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at The Oaks at Lakeway, 1900 Ranch Road 620 South. Agencies from across Central Texas are coming together to give the public an opportunity to interact with first responders in a non-emergency setting as well as gain insight into what they do and the resources they use to keep people and pets safe.

The many agencies featured at the event will be bringing their helicopters, police cars, motorcycles, ambulances, fire trucks, rescue boats, ATVs, K-9’s, horses, wildland fire mitigation equipment and more. In addition to the safety education, attendees can enjoy music, food and drink, local businesses, local non-profit groups, Firefighter Combat Challenges, Kid’s Fun Zone, Home Depot Kid’s Workshop and facepainting.

Public Safety Day was founded in 2009 with the purpose of highlighting Central Texas first responders and their mission with an entertaining and education event for the Lake Travis Community.
