CREST) center. CREST is the Midwest’s largest emergency training facility and is located on the college’s campus in Auburn Hills.
Individuals may buy a brick with three or six lines of engraved text to pay tribute to loved ones. Engraved bricks are $100 for a small one and $250 for a large one. The bricks are displayed on a “Path of Honor” leading up to the CREST site main entrance. With each brick order, contributors receive a keepsake miniature replica of the brick.
“These tributes honor our heroes,” said OCC Foundation Executive Director Kathryn Rusak. “You may honor a friend or relative, or someone who serves or has served as a member of a law enforcement, fire or EMT organization. When you buy a brick for yourself, a loved one, your company, or a client, you become permanently associated with OCC, CREST and the Path of Honor.”
To buy a brick, call Julie Burley at (248) 341-2137 or visit the “buy a brick” website.
