Regina’s emergency services personnel had a chance this week to interact with those whom they serve.
Regina Police, Fire and Protective Services and Emergency Medical Services all descended upon Victoria Park in downtown Regina Tuesday for a barbeque with residents. This, according to chief of the Regina Police Evan Bray, was for them to demonstrate their appreciation to the community.
“All three of our agencies work very closely on a daily basis with the community,” noted Bray. “Something like this is an opportunity for us to interact outside of an emergency.”
That’s something Fire Chief Layne Jackson agreed with.
“The community’s always very good to us, even under those circumstances. So this is a good way to appreciate them.”
Bray also said that an event like the barbeque also is beneficial for emergency services persons.
“To be able to stand here and flip some burgers, shake some hands, smile and engage with the public in real positive and pro-active situation, it’s so good.”
