News

DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — About 60 first responders from the city of Dothan and Houston County gathered at Emmanuel Christian School on Friday to teach children about a day in the life of a first responder.

Students moved around to different stations where they learned about various jobs with police, fire, K-9 units, EMTs, and the bomb squad, among others. Students got to ask questions about each of those professions.

This is the 4th year Emmanuel Christian School has held this event for students.

The Emmanuel Student Government Association raised $4,000 to host the event, and to provide lunch for the first responders.

“We just want our first responders to get more recognition for what they do for our community,” Emmanuel Christian School SGA President Katie Butler. “It just means that we love our first responders and we want to take care of them by feeding them lunch today. Hope they have a good time.”

Emmanuel Christian was able to provide $25 gift cards to each first responder who volunteered at Friday’s event.
