BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – Rescuers with the Baton Rouge Fire Department (BRFD) are frequently found serving the community in a variety of capacities.

Not only have these first responders been known to fight fires, change tires for stranded citizens, and save kittens, but some even take the time to tackle construction projects for local schools.

According to BRFD, District Chief Warren Conerly and Fire Equipment Officer Anthony Minor are two such firefighters.

They invested time in a construction project for Westdale Elementary School by crafting an intricately constructed rabbit shed for the students.

Thanks to the firefighters, this brand new home for Westdale’s rabbits is situated in the school’s garden, where students frequently gather for hands-on instruction related to Math and Science.
