This program is fantastic. I was amazed at all the topics covered. The quadriplegic/artist was an incredible powerful message (even for mme and I didn’t see him in person). Thanks to all th epublic safety professionals who take time to do this. They are great role models for the kids. For the kids to get to know them and have fun with them – I think it will increase their respect and appreciation for the services they provide for our communities. I can’t say enough good things about all of you involved and the program. Thank you so much!
