In honor of 9/11, St. Lucie Elementary third graders commemorated the day learning about our community’s local heroes. Members of Port St. Lucie’s SWAT team shared information about gun safety, their jobs, and equipment. St. Lucie County Fire Dept. taught the students how to prepare their homes for safety, taught them about the use of their equipment, and gave a tour of the trucks! We also had special visits from a St. Lucie County Deputy, a Fort Pierce police officer, and St. Lucie County and Martin County firefighters who spent time reading to the students in the classroom. Thank you Ms. Hallahan for organizing this engaging event!
