An event to honor local first responders, the annual “Unity of Effort” returns to Sequim on Saturday, Aug. 10.
Security Services Northwest hosts the event from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. at the company headquarters, 250 Center Park Way.
A free, family-friendly event open to the public, “Unity of Effort” features a variety of federal, state and local civilian businesses and organizations, law enforcement, emergency medical, search and rescue and military units.
Businesses and clubs are welcome to participate, for free, with a display/informational booth. For more information, contact SSNW Vice President Jennifer Scott at 800-859-3463 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Popular events such as the bucket brigade competition, straw pile toy find and bounce house for children, and live music (Stardust Big Band and Hairstorm, a 1980s tribute band) all return for the 2019 event. Also featured are a number of displays, vendor booths and show-and-tell exhibits. Fort Discovery Corporation sponsors a target shooting contest using a “virtual” shooting simulator.
A field next to the SSNW Headquarters has again been secured for a helicopter landing zone. Medical airlift helicopters are expected, and possibly a U.S. Navy helicopter.
