Kids Learn About Safety During Emergency Preparedness Camp


It's time for kids to head off to summer camp, and some are learning from first responders about safety. That includes staying safe from the hot summer heat.

26 teens ages 14 to 18 are learning from police officers, firefighters, EMS workers, dispatchers and other emergency workers at the Onslow County Emergency Operations Center about how they keep our community safe and save lives.

They're learning about DWI awareness, to water and fire rescues, and with the heat index expected to hit 100 the next couple of days, they're also learning how hydration and how staying cool can save your life.

It may sound simple, but you need to make sure you are drinking plenty of water in the extreme heat, take breaks if you are outdoors, and remember to use sunscreen...all tips to help from becoming dehydrated and sick in the extreme heat.
