On February 24, 2011 DeFuniak Springs Police and the DeFuniak Springs Fire Department visited the “His Kids” day care to talk with them about safety.
Members from the DeFuniak Springs Police also surprised the youngsters with EDDIE THE EAGLE who is their Mascot for gun safety. Officers then explained and demonstrated, through class participation what to do when they come in contact with a stranger.
Members of the Fire Department talked to them on procedures to follow if there is a fire and when to call 911 and when not to. After receiving goodie bags, the demonstration moved from the classroom to the outside where the youngsters were able to enter a police car as well as a fire truck. Members from both agencies answered many questions from the youngsters during this time.
The visit ended with all the youngsters’ high fiving, hugging and telling the entire group goodbye, but not before they made their way to EDDIE THE EAGLE to give him a hug and say their goodbyes to him as well.
