Kids were all fired up at Lowe’s Saturday for the Ruston Fire Department, Ruston Police and Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Office’s Safety Day. They learned about fire safety and prevention, gun and seat belt safety.
Louisiana Tech University School of Nursing Students volunteered their time at the event while also getting practice taking blood pressure.
Nearby, firefighter Cade Griswold manned an ambulance to show children what was inside.
“Some of the kids don’t want to see,” he said. “They’re kind of scared of it.”
