As the school year winds down and summer vacation begins, young minds are on being outside. To help keep children safe while being outdoors, Helene Dodge, a special K-9 deputy with NCSD along with her search dog, Orso, talked to students at Rockfish River Elementary School about safety tips if they should become lost in the wilderness.

Sheriff Brooks demonstrates how a bright orange garbage bag can be used to stay dry and help search teams locate a missing child in the woods.
