FRUITA, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT News)-- One local high school student is taking initiative to prepare students in the event of an emergency.
Fruita Monument Sophomore, Ryan Davis, created safety buckets for the Fruita 8/9 classrooms to use during a lock-down. He says this was all part of an Eagle Scout Project. He thought of items that teachers and students would need in the event of a lock-down. He made sure to include water, trash bags, duct tape, even feminine products.
"It also has honey for diabetic needs, so it just has a lot of supplies for an eventuality that might come. It might save a life," says Ryan Davis.
The safety buckets have been in classrooms at Fruita 8/9 for a few weeks now. Ryan made 50 buckets in total.
