HOLLADAY -- Students at Crestview Elementary School explored some careers hands-on Thursday. More than 600 kids mingled with some of the men and women who serve our community at Crestview's Emergency Services Day.

Students from preschool to sixth grade spent their day touring ambulances, talking to police, chatting with physicians and learning the ins and outs of firefighting.

The principal of Crestview, Verneita Hunt, said the youngsters were full of questions.

"They're just learning so many things that are important for their everyday life and safety skills," Hunt said.

She added that the crowd favorite was definitely the LifeFlight landing.

Students also learned lessons about safe and healthy lifestyle decisions.
