2011 Safe Families Expo at the Walter P. Chrysler Museum

The Walter P. Chrysler Museum hosted the Safe Families Expo on August 13, 2011; the event featured classic and new police cars, fire trucks, and ambulances, along with demonstrations and information tents. Marc Rozman was there to capture the event.

One hitherto unnoticed aspect of the event was the appearance of a Dodge Durango set up as an emergency vehicle, with necessary interior changes. The original Durango was used by many fire, rescue, and police departments for non-pursuit duties, and Dodge appears to be setting up a formal package and fleet plan for the new Durango; note the interior changes, which are likely accompanied by a siren and light-bar prep package.
