Students were on cloud nine when several Oklahoma State Troopers arrived at our school in their traffic patrol helicopter! After circling our building several times, the state troopers touched down near the school. The state troopers then talked to the children about their job and shared important emergency preparedness tips. Students even explored the helicopter and had a chance to sit in the pilot’s seat! The special visit captured some local news coverage on FOX 25’s Twitter page!
Our community helper visit was part of our Get Ready. Get Safe. program which helps nurture foundational safety and emergency preparedness skills. Throughout the month of July, students learn about community helpers and have the opportunity to thank local heroes for their service.
