No major incidents over holiday weekend
July 5, 2011
The large influx of visitors to Summit County over the holiday weekend resulted in a substantial increase in calls to both the Sheriff’s department and Park City Fire District.
"The more people who visit the more calls that come in," said Detective Sergeant Ron Bridge. "There was the Canyons concert, a triathlon, the Oakley parade, plus we had to keep normal patrols."
According to Bridge and Assistant Fire Chief Bob Zanetti, no major calls were responded to over the weekend despite the high volume.
"Thanks to the cool weather and rain, we didn’t have any fires that we responded to even with the new cake fireworks," said Zanetti, "There is still the July 24 celebrations though and it will probably be a lot drier then."
Zanetti said the fire district responded to all sorts of calls over the weekend, with a noticeable increase in partying-related medical calls.
On Friday, Park City Police and Sheriff’s personnel announced they had apprehended five individuals thought to be linked to the vehicle burglaries that had occurred throughout Summit County over the past two months.
