The Jackson Parish Sheriff’s Office recently participated in the Annual Weston Fun Day sponsored by the Ward 4 Fire Department for Weston High School
As the students excitedly arrived at the Fire Department, they were greeted by Sparky the Fire Dog. The students were then entertained with a variety of fun activities which included learning when and how to call 911, listening to a dramatic reading of “It’s time to call 911” during which an actual 911 emergency call was received for Ward 4 Fire Department (Weston), playing an active game of “911”, participating in “dialing” 911, watching an impressive K-9 demonstration, learning Fire safety procedures including Stop, Drop and Roll and calming techniques, a visit from Smokey the Bear, touring a Forestry Bulldozer and “exploring” the back of an Ambulance.
After the demonstrations and tours the students were able to burn off some energy by playing on an inflatable slide and bouncing to their hearts content in a bounce house. The students, teachers and all guests were then treated to a delicious lunch of grilled burgers, chips, cookies, ice cream and soft drinks/water. After lunch the students were allowed additional play time which they thoroughly enjoyed. Goody bags containing an assortment of fun educational supplies including coloring books, crayons, color changing mood pencils, fidget spinners, bracelets, stress balls and several other fun items were given to each student.
At the conclusion of Fun Day, teachers and students were driven back to the school campus of Weston High School in Ward 4 Fire Trucks.
