Art City First Grade Walking Field Trip

Art City first grade students had the opportunity to walk to the Springville Fire Department and Police Station. They learned some important information while they were there. Every family should have a meeting place in case of fire. Smoke is more harmful than the fire itself. In jail you have no privacy. Police sirens are VERY loud! Riding in a police car is very uncomfortable because the seats are hard. Thank you Springville City for teaching us some helpful things.
