911 Education Day in Longview

It was a day for kids in Longview to learn about the importance of the 9-1-1 emergency number. The public was invited to the Longview mall Saturday to meet the city's firefighters, police and paramedics in an annual event called 9-1-1 day. Children were treated to games and balloons, and got a chance to meet the K-9 officer while learning a lesson on the 9-1-1 emergency system. Experts say its crucial to get to children at an early age to educate them about what to do in an emergency.
