Heroes Up Close

Jennifer Polen of Jasper, 7, pretended to be sick as she sat in an ambulance bed between her mother, Tammy, right, and Memorial Hospital emergency medical technician Alyssa Kluesner of Dubois during Family Heroes Day at Dubois Branch Library on Saturday morning. The event gave children a chance to talk to medical responders, volunteer firefighters and police officers of Dubois County and to see their vehicles up close.
