Capron Cubs get to know their first responders

A first responder is defined as a certified, often volunteer, emergency, medical or law enforcement officer who is the first to arrive at an accident or disaster scene. At Capron Elementary, we brought in our local first responders to help our younger students understand what they do, how to call 911, what to do if there is a fire, and most importantly have a family plan in case of a fire.

Students were most excited to see the lights and hear the sirens. Many questions were asked by the students and they were given an assignment: learn your street address.
