Kids explore public safety careers in Ripley County

Program offered by Genesis: Pathways to Success

(VERSAILLES, Ind.) -- A unique camp is giving students a glimpse into careers as police officers and firefighters.


"Genesis: Pathways to Success" hosted the Explore Public Safety Camp at the Southeastern Career Center in Versailles this week.


A total of 15 local students were given the opportunity to operate a fire hose and learned how K-9 units train and handle their animals.


In addition, the students learned the unique differences between conservation officers, state police officers, and city police officers.


Organizers say the camp is also beneficial for students who are not going into public safety careers as they learned valuable first aid skills that have the potential to come in handy in every-day life.


“It’s very interesting how firefighters use things that are usually seen as toys to help solve problems they may face when trying to save someone. It prevents people from getting harmed in real situations," said Sand Creek Elementary incoming seventh grader Jarrett Lewis.


Some agencies that were involved include the Southeastern Career Center's Public Safety program, the Indiana State Police, the Indiana Department of Natural Resource, and Batesville, North Vernon, Osgood, and Versailles Fire Departments.



Genesis: Pathways to Success is an initiative of the Ripley County Community Foundation that serves as a perpetual resource to support, expand, and enhance educational and economic opportunities for local communities.


Here are a few photos from the public safety camp:
