First responders read to Long County kids
ludowici police

The kids of Long County got both hot and cold this past Tuesday as members of the Ludowici Police and Long County Fire Department paid a visit to the Long County Library to read to the kids and also showcase the vehicles they drive in.


Captain Holden Osborn read a book to the kids entitled Patrolling Police Cars which is all about the jobs and responsibilities of police cars. Afterward, kids were able to look at Captain Holden's police car and take a look inside.

Lieutenant Ronnell Huston of the Long County Fire Department was up next as he gave out summer safety tips such as letting windows down, turning on air conditioners in vehicles and if it's too hot, any longer than five seconds on the pavement, it is too hot for animals as well. He also let the kids spray the fire hose that the Fire Department uses which made quite a splash on the kids at the event. 


Jacqueline Boatright was also on hand to do some face painting which ranged from different animals such as sharks to lions.

The kids were also treated to making shark tanks and also had a snack which was a fruit shark snack.    


The kids and parents were also presented with goody bags which consisted of a fire hat, compliments of Firehouse Subs in Hinesville, and a Firehouse coupon and a free book from the Library entitled True Tales of Animal Heroes.
