Wednesday, May 4th, CLA will be holding their 7th Annual Emergency Day. We will be having representatives from different emergency agency’s. So far, we will be having representatives from McMinn County Sheriff’s Department, Clearwater and McMinn Rural Fire Departments, McMinn Rescue Squad, LifeStar, AMR, and, TBI, Forestry, East TN Children’s Hospital and many more. We have tried to include everyone we can think of in the emergency profession. We have stations set up for each department so the students can ask questions and some departments have different activities the students can participate in. This is an all day, outside event. Students and families are able to get up close and personal to a lot of emergency equipment and experience how it all works and who does what in the case of an emergency. They get to look inside the vehicles, crawl in and out of obstacle courses, maze trailers, mock wrecks, etc.

Our t-shirts have been designed by one of our own students this year. We are in the process now of designing and getting our colors, styles, etc. T shirts will be $10 per shirt and come in children and adult sizes.

Watch the e-Roar and your emails for more information as time gets closer.
