Saturday morning's event in Cass County was the second of its kind. Police and fire officials, were among many who showed up at Dowagiac High School to show their support.
"It's something that happens in our community on a regular basis, unfortunately, and probably one of the biggest and most calls we handle," says Dowagiac Police and Fire Chief Steve Grinnewald. "So we just want to get the message out that we're serious about it."
