The Sheffield community got to know their first responders a bit better at the Breakfast with Badges event on Saturday, Oct. 20.

Serving up doughnuts and juice at Block 10, Sheffield's Police, Fire Department, and EMS members geared up to introduce themselves to area children as a way to get them more familiarized with who they are and what they do.

"I think we've got a pretty good turnout," said Erinne Kensett, who helped City Clerk Katy Flint organize the event.
