CARMEL, N.Y. -- The 11th annual Children’s Expo and Public Safety Day on May 14 drew record crowds to the County’s Training and Operations building on the Donald B. Smith Campus in Carmel.

Presented by the Child Advocacy Center and the Bureau of Emergency Services of Putnam County, the event featured live demonstrations and participation from town fire departments, state police, the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office, County Bureau of Emergency Services, Putnam Hospital Center and the CAC.

It drew an "impressive" turnout, said Robert Lipton, Deputy Commissioner at Putnam County Bureau of Emergency Services.

“We saw our largest crowds ever with close to 1,000 residents participating in a wide variety of attractions, games and demonstrations over a four hour period. At this rate, we may be outgrowing our event location.”

Sponsored by Eric Gross, in memory of his wife, Barbara, and Putnam Hospital Center, the day featured 45 vendors and interactive learning for kids, while parents had access to education and resources, Safe Child, car seat checks, social media safety and physical, mental and health services, among them.
