FAIRFIELD — The children of Fairfield want to make their city a safer place.
A group of 400 future and potential students of the Public Safety Academy learned how to help at a special demonstration at the Fairfield Police Department’s training facility near Enterprise Drive.
Children from fifth through eighth grade had a chance to explore the jobs of firefighters and police officers.
The children, and some curious parents, had a chance to tour nine different stations displaying the myriad aspects of being a community service member. At each station a police officer or firefighter was available to answer questions.
