Keeping the Community Safe
Community Recreational Services of the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community provided a second Keeping Our Community Safe event at the Way of Life Facility for their second-session summer camp youth and other community youth programs on Wednesday, July 17. The youth learned about the Salt River Fire Department (SRFD), Salt River Police Department (SRPD), drug awareness and safety awareness.

The SRFD firefighters and EMTs showed the youth the equipment they use on a daily basis, including monitors that check a patient’s vital signs. Firefighter/EMT Joseph Christopher demonstrated how fast he could put on his fire gear and equipment: in less than one minute.
