July 27, 2006 – Children participating in the Sikeston Area Higher Education Center’s Child Development Lab in Sikeston, Mo., have been learning about community helpers this summer. The preschool classroom has been interacting with firefighters, police officers, emergency response teams and the Missouri Department of Transportation. This week an air evac team visited the lab and showed the children a helicopter used to fly patients to hospitals.
