Captain Shannon Caraway said the department has a lot of activities and goodies planned for their local community.

“We’re going to give out at least 400 backpacks,” Caraway said. “We have a mechanical bull ride. We have a water slide. We have plenty of food - hot dogs, hamburgers, corn dogs. We have lots of water and drinks.”
