This years Burbank Summer Daze Camp located at Robert Gross Park recently took a trip over to The Bob Hope Airport, to see how the Airport runs and get a show from the different agencies that make up the airport’s operations.
The campers heard from Police Officers, Firefighters, Southwest ticket operators, and the members of the TSA and were able to see the equipment the different people and agencies use.
Many of the campers commented that this is the best field trip they had ever been on. The best part for some where getting wet from the spray of Crash 2, or looking into the inside of a Jet, while a couple enjoyed looking into the Burbank Police Helicopter. Of course at the end, all of them enjoyed the pizza lunch that was served before heading back to the park.
Campers even got to see one of their counselors handcuffed, and an Airport Authority Police officer use his taser on a demo board.
The program was hosted by Lucy Burghdorf the Airports Manager, Public Relations & Government Affairs.
Burbank City Council approved extending the Outdoor Dining Program including continued use of public sidewalks citywide and parking spaces and in-street parklet dining on San Fernando Blvd. in Downtown Burbank
