On Saturday, July 14, kids shot fire hoses with firemen, climbed inside police cars, and ventured through the Fort McCoy smoke house to learn how they could be safe in emergencies. Parents checked their child safety seats, learned about Amber Alert, and registered their children with the Onalaska Police Department. Emergency Services Day at Globe University-La Crosse was an educational and fun day for the entire family!

Following the Onalaska Legion Color Guard, Onalaska Mayor Joe Chilsen gave an address expressing his gratitude of the men and women that worked to make the area safe. He also shared his appreciation of having Globe University as a resource for the community.

The event was coordinated by the Globe University Criminal Justice Club, advised by Scott Alo, Globe University Criminal Justice Program Chair, and led by Globe Student, Corina Russell. The club was able to raise nearly $500 from food sales and donations for the Coulee Region Children’s Internet Protection Task Force. Globe University-La Crosse will match the funds the group raised for the task force.

“Emergency Services Day is a great way to give back to the community and help people of all ages become better educated on  services and safety practices while having a lot of fun. The Globe University Criminal Justice club presented a fabulous community event and Globe University was happy to welcome community members on campus to learn more about emergency services and show appreciation for the people who keep our area safe,” said Stephanie Cline, Campus Director.
