Public safety program targets Broward students
LAUDERDALE LAKES, Fla. (WSVN) -- Some South Florida students found a reason to be fired up Thursday.
Pupils at Boyd Anderson High School in Lauderdale Lakes put their hard hats on, as they became firefighters for a day.
The event is part of a public safety program by the Broward Sheriff's Office Department of Fire Rescue to make learning a little more hands on. "We have a great partnership with BSO to help our students learn and get an opportunity like this one, so we are very appreciative," said school principal Angel Almanzar.
As part of the program, firefighters have been helping students learn proper safety behaviors, tips and prevention strategies.
