Students At Local Elementary School Receive A Different Lesson
Students at a Gainesville elementary school were taught by different teachers today.
The Gainesville Police Department and Gainesville Fire and Rescue visited A. Quinn Jones Elementary School for the second annual safety day.
It's a day in which the students learn what their police and firefighters do for them.
"We want to show the kids that officers are approachable," said Officer Debbie Parker. "That we are not always on the bad side of coming in and doing something in their homes. That they can come talk to us when ever they need us and the door is always open for them to come see us."
Students learned what equipment firefighters use, got a peek inside the fire truck, asked officers questions, and even got their running speed captured by a radar gun.
This was a full school-day event.
