Emergency responders provided an up-close-and-personal look at some of their equipment at a demonstration hosted by the Lorain County Sheriff’s Office this past Saturday at Camden Baptist Church on Rt. 511. Visitors saw police dogs show off their drug-sniffing and takedown training before Camden Township firefighters used the jaws of life to take apart a wrecked vehicle.
