Mecosta Co. Youth Academy Gives Kids a First-Hand First Responder Experience

Every day, first responders put their lives on the line to keep us safe. Mecosta County wants to make sure kids understand just what it takes.

This summer, the Sheriff’s Office and Big Rapids Public Safety are holding a weeklong Mecosta County Youth Academy.

Officer Bill Sell is explaining how these kids will learn about teamwork, leadership, physical fitness, first aid, fire safety and more.
