Touch-A-Truck 2019

Posted: November 15, 2019

Last month’s Touch-a-Truck event hosted by SVEC was a huge success, giving kids from across the Suwannee Valley a chance to sit behind the wheel of a variety of specialized vehicles and meet the professionals who operate them on a regular basis.

The Oct. 12 event featured fire trucks, a police car, a trash truck, a farm tractor, a gyrocopter, an ambulance, a concrete mixer and a school bus. SVEC also provided a bucket truck and digger truck, while the sheriff’s office brought a boat, a military-style truck and its mobile command trailer.
