TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Desert Shadows Middle School hosted a Rio Rico Fire District community safety event, on Feb. 22.  

The school, located in the Pena Blanca Highlands community, was the site of an event to teach safety to youth of all ages.  In addition to teaching attendees about fire safety, firefighters handed out bicycle helmets to children of all ages, and walked a bicycle safety course with the riders, to ensure they knew the 'rules of the road'. 

Also on hand was the Nogales Suburban Fire District, who kept guests cool with water games courtesy of their brush truck. 

Hot dogs, hamburgers, chips and drinks were provided for the event by the Rio Rico Firefighters Union Local 4631.

Events like this are held annually to ensure the Rio Rico community is up to date on safety equipment and the daily activities of its fire district.
