Lieutenant Larry Grainger said events like this help first responders connect with kids in the community.

“We like to engage kids in a good situation,” Grainger said. “Where they see us as humans because there’s so much bad that they see on TV, whether it’s television shows they watch or whatever you know. So we want them to just see us as humans and be able to give back to our community.”
