Lodi students get first-hand look at how first responders keep people safe

Orange safety cones, a 6-foot wooden wall and a human-sized dummy laying on a stretcher were all placed on the grass at Lincoln Technical Academy on Wednesday afternoon, where they were used for the inaugural Public Safety Career Day.

The event offered Lodi Unified School District high school students an opportunity to learn about careers as first responders, with representatives from various agencies answering questions and handing out fliers to curious students. Although it is the first career fair dedicated specifically to public safety careers for Lodi, Lt. Shad Canestrino of the Lodi Police Department hopes that it will spark an interest in law enforcement, firefighting or emergency medical technician careers in some of the students.
