NORWOOD -- The Norwood Beach recently held its first annual Emergency Response Workers day and are calling it a big success.

Representatives from the Norwood Police, Norwood Fire Department, Norwood/Potsdam EMS and Norwood DPW all came to show the community their vehicles and tools they would use in an emergency.

This gave nearly 50 children a hands-on experience of how each emergency response crew operates, the equipment they use, and how they work together in order to help people in need.

Officials want to extend special thank you to Stewart’s Ice Cream Shops for donating enough ice cream, toppings, etc. to feed roughly 150 people, and to our emergency response volunteers that made this event possible.
