Though the weather was foreboding, more people turned out for Navasota’s Second First Responders Day than for the first last year, making for an event that brought a smile to the face of Navasota Police Chief Justin Leeth.
There were lots of vendors on hand to take care of the hungry crowds, including the Navasota Lions who fed the First Responders for free. And there were lots of things to see, from personnel carriers and armored battering rams, to k-9 officers and robotic officers, and also the City of Bryan’s complete Mobile Command Center, that serves all seven counties in the Brazos Valley. Brazos County’s Emergency Management Coordinator Jerry Henry was on-board to demonstrate all that it and its 9-man crew can do.
And thankfully the rain held off til the end of the day, beginning to fall as Chief Leeth started the tug-of-war.
And so as everyone began to get soaked, Grimes County volunteer smoke eaters and local EMS once again fought the law. And once again, the law won.
