On May 2nd, fifth-grade students from Pueblo County District 70 schools were honored by the Pueblo County Sheriff Office for completing the Drug Abuse Resistance Education or D.A.R.E.
D.A.R.E. is a 10-week program in which Pueblo County Sheriff's School Resource Officer goes into the classroom to teach students the decision-making skills they need to avoid involvement in drugs, gangs, violence and other potentially high-risk behaviors.
The Pueblo Rural Protection District was there at County High School today to celebrate the graduation of the fifth-graders from D.A.R.E.. While the firefighters were there, they showed the students Brush 761 and explained what a firefighter's job is. There were several other agencies there, including Pueblo County Sheriff, American Medical Response, Emergency Service Bureau, the Pueblo Bomb Squad, SWAT, Pueblo County Dispatchers, and Pueblo County FFA.
