News and Information

Today marked the end our 2021 Danville Police & Fire Summer Camp. 30 campers, aged 9-13, spent three full days with our public safety agencies, learning in detail exactly what we do each day.

Day Two of our 2021 Danville Police & Fire Summer Camp is underway. Troopers with the Indiana State Police Aviation Section are currently giving a presentation to our campers and the questions being thrown at them are worth sharing…

“Does it have cup holders?”
“How complicated is the engine?”
“Can you land this at a McDonalds?”
“Have you ever hit a bird?”
“Can you see a snake on your helicopter camera?”

We appreciate this crew coming to speak with our campers about what they do and for their patience in answering all of their questions!

Today marks the start of the Danville Police and Fire Camp 2021. This event is hosted at Ellis Park in Danville, Indiana. Campers began arriving this morning at 7:30am and prepared for the day’s events. To kick of the day, The Danville Fire Department Dive Team hosted a demonstration and allowed campers a unique opportunity to interact with the divers at the Gill Aquatic Center pool. Today campers will participate in Relay Challenge, Fire Extinguisher Arcade, Big Wheel Course, and Drill / Marching Exercise. This year’s event runs through Wednesday July 21st, 2021.

Danville Fire Department has added a Live Feed for Hendricks County Dispatch Channels. This live feed is being provided as a courtesy to our residents.

We are very excited to announce that Hendricks Power Cooperative has donated $2500 to our 2021 Danville Police & Fire Summer Camp and will be the title sponsor for the event! This three-day camp will provide our local youth with an opportunity to have positive interactions with Danville police officers and firefighters and also provide education regarding what our agencies do on a daily basis. Campers will be provided camp t-shirts, hats, and water bottles, backpacks and lunch will be provided daily. The camp will include many activities, including an interactive water safety presentation with the Danville Fire Scuba Dive Team at the Gill Aquatic Center (campers will need swim suits), a crime scene investigation and evidence collection activity, hands-on smoke house education and scenarios, police K9 demonstrations and so much more! We are so excited to host this camp for the second year (last year was cancelled due to COVID) and we are beyond thankful for the Hendricks Power Cooperative sponsorship!
