Unity of Effort Celebration
August 10, 2019
10 am - 5 pm
“Unity of Effort” - the premier “first responder” recognition event on the Olympic Peninsula - takes place Saturday, Aug. 10, 2019 in Sequim.
Security Services Northwest will host the event from 10 am to 5 pm Aug. 10 at company headquarters, 250 Center Park Way in Sequim. The Unity of Effort is free and open to the public.
“The event has developed from having an armored car, fire truck and an ostrich to having helicopters, representatives of multiple branches of the armed services and dozens of local first responders,” says SSNW president Joe D’Amico.
Expect to see a variety of displays, vendor booths and show-and-tell exhibits from fire districts, law enforcement, the U.S. military and Washington State agencies.
At previous Unity of Effort events, helicopters and crew from the U.S. Army and Airlift Northwest have participated.
Popular events such as the bucket brigade competition, straw pile toy find for children, bouncing house for children, and live music all return. The annual .22-caliber target shooting contest returns, thanks to a “virtual” shooting simulator.
In recent years, the Seattle Sea-Gals have sent a contingent, which also has become an annual attraction.
Food service will be available from a selection of food truck vendors parked on site.
Vehicle parking is available on streets near the SSNW headquarters, and in the parking lot next door at Evergreen Collision Center & Towing, which is not open to the public on Saturdays.
