Disaster Response Appreciation Day planned in McHenry

McHENRY – The Rotary Club of McHenry-Sunrise will host the Disaster Response Appreciation Day from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at Petersen Park, 4300 Petersen Park Road.

In recognition of the area’s first responders, the event will allow the community to show their gratitude for these dedicated emergency workers.

The event will include a portable disaster response command center and hospital, a K-9 demonstration, a drone equipped with a camera and thermal imaging technology to find missing persons, and an attraction for children.

Children in attendance can maneuver their way out of a mock safety house during a simulated fire.
