The Manchester Touch a Truck is going strong after more than a decade! The trucks are fabulous, the crew and officers even more so as they chat with children, allow the children to get on an din the vehicles, see different emergency vehicles in a safe and calm setting (not how most children experience them) and provide a wonderful photo opportunity for parents and grandparents as well as a great community spirit!

There will be equipment for display, pictures and hands on for children such as backhoes, loaders, dump trucks and mowers. It is a citywide event for people of all ages. The local Police, Fire and Emergency Response at the Hospital attend the event so kids can explore their vehicles and get a first hand look at the equipment inside and the meet the people who use it.
