Mariner Middle School teemed with outside activity the morning of Nov. 9, when a gathering of first responders assembled to give students a glimpse into their roles serving the community.

School resource officer Josh Hackney coordinated the event, which included representatives from Delaware State Police’s Troop 7, motorcycle, K-9 and crash reconstruction units; Delaware Natural Resources Fish and Wildlife and K-9 units; U.S. Coast Guard; Milton Fire and Police Departments; Newark Police Department and Capitol Police.

Students traveled in groups to stations set up along the athletic fields to learn about each responder’s responsibilities and the career training they needed to earn their positions.
