    Almost every day we have a friendly cop who patrols the halls in the school and to just check in to see how people are doing which makes us feel really safe. Additionally, I was in a car accident about two miles away from my house and an ambulance was there almost instantly to take me to the hospital to make sure I was okay and the first responders were very nice and did their job well.
