Last updated 11/18/2020 at 12:55pm
Fortunately for Angela Lopez, her 6-year-old daughter Esperanza knew to call 9-1-1 in an emergency. On Oct. 21 Lopez fell at her Frostproof home and couldn't get up or call for help.
When Esperanza couldn't find anyone to help, she retrieved her mother's phone and called 9-1-1.
Polk County Fire Rescue personnel on Nov. 18 honored the Spook Hill Elementary first-grader, designating her a "9-1-1 hero."
Fire Rescue public educator Rosa LaLonde used the special recognition event as an opportunity to teach about 50 first graders how to call for help in an emergency.
"9-1-1," the children call...
