Deputies from the Smith County Sheriff's Department, led by Jeremy Black, came to Higgins Elementary for Community Helper Day. They talked to students about what Sheriffs do on a daily basis and how students can stay safe. They also let the students inspect their trucks and police cars. The Whitehouse Fire Department also came by to talk about how they help the community and how students can stay safe if a fire is near. They showed the students all of the fire truck equipment as well. Then the ETMC helicopter flew in at 1pm. Once they were safely on the ground, students were able to crawl through the helicopter and the flight crew answered questions about the helicopter and how they help the community. Students had a blast meeting all of the Community Helpers, learning about their jobs and equipment, and of course watching the helicopter land! Thanks so much to the Smith County Sheriff’s Department, Whitehouse Fire Department, and ETMC flight crew!
