The program will not just be educational for the students: it is also educational for the firefighters, as those performing and demonstrating at Sunrise are being mentored and trained by others from across the area, including the Bullhead City Fire Department.  Most of the firefighters participating at Sunrise are expected to be from the Round Rock, TX, fire department.

Sunrise Elementary is located at 2645 Landon Drive, just east of the Bullhead Parkway.
