Sen. James Brewster hosts first responders

Tuesday, Aug. 27, 2013, 2:46 a.m.
 

State Sen. James R. Brewster, D-McKeesport, welcomed first responders from across Pennsylvania's 45th Senatorial District to an end-of-summer picnic.

Police, firefighters and EMS from McKeesport, Clairton, Elizabeth Township, Glassport, Liberty, North Versailles Township, Port Vue, Versailles, White Oak, Arnold, Monroeville, Plum, Pitcairn and Turtle Creek gathered with their families at the Andrew Jakomas Blue Top Pavilion in Renziehausen Park in McKeesport on Sunday. Emergency personnel from Allegheny County and Penn State Greater Allegheny also attended.

“Our first responders' picnic was an opportunity for my office to thank the police, fire and ambulance services for what they do for the general public,” Brewster said. “I hope to make it an annual event. The turnout was excellent, and we had a great time. It's just a way to give back to those who risk their lives for us every single day.”

The picnic included lunch, face-painting and a bounce house for children, a K-9 demonstration by McKeesport and Plum police departments and a battle of the barrel for local firefighters.
